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 How can the flight to Egypt in Matthew 2:15 be a fulfillment of Hosea 11:1?
Fair enough. As nobody is perfectly objective it seems beneficial in this case to have our personal frameworks apparent. Cheers.

As you are not a Christian you might want to mention so when answering a question that seeks a Christian response, or at least when giving an answer most Christian would not find valid. This way the reader understands the framework you use to form an answer. As Christ is considered by Christians as the true Israel this explanation would not be accepted by most Christians as it was not Mathew's exegetical methods but rather the miraculous event that made the true Israel, mirror the ancient, that has caused the connection. No need to pretend the 'taking it out of its rightful context' this way.

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
