I am a Canadian, married with kid, and working in Hong Kong. I usually answer posts from a reformed / protestant / evangelical perspective.

People I have encountered on this site seem to be a ‘whole bunch of good people’. Even those who sharply disagree with my own point of view.

I am a huge sinner but am happy knowing God's grace will keep me in his grip.

comment Exodus 21:22: is “mischief” related only to the mother or to the baby, too?
That Hammburabi code is really an interesting thing to link to. I think I will have to read the whole thing.

comment How does a less Messianic reading of Song of Solomon interpret 5:16 “He is altogether lovely”?
That sermon by Flavel is excellent. I remember reading it about 20 years ago and still remember enjoying it.

comment Exodus 21:22: is “mischief” related only to the mother or to the baby, too?
@MonicaCellio - Yes I would agree that it is an interpretive translation, nevertheless, even if this was a Hellenized, somewhat Greek influenced interpretation, biasing the LXX, I do not think it is invalid. I still see the natural order of the words to refer to 'what comes out' as the subject of 'mischief or injury'. That a more obscure word for simple injury was chosen, seems to pertain to the mysterious nature of injury inside a womb. Your argument is probably along the lines of this link. chiefrabbi.org/tag/texts/#.UG97nrcayc0

comment Was 'σκύβαλον' (skubalon) profanity?
@Kazark - The edit was great. If I was rich I would hire you to do more of that. Actually I have other work in progress where I may seek an editor's help. Cheers.

comment The will of God in Ephesians 1: εὐδοκία, βουλή, θελήμα
Is it possible that the subject of predestination implies more than the usual self-possession of his own will which is having the focus of the whole series of thoughts?
