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.

@brilliant - for some reason I did not realize you were specifically aksing for the alternate view, but I lean to the brackets theory. I do not mind if you just want me to delete this answer as it did not asnwer your question. Just let me know. I am not emotionally connected to either view.

@brilliant - yes I can really go either way on this, maybe some in the crowd where not totally familiar with Aramaic in which case the parenthesis would not be needed. BTW need to change question to refer to Chapter 1.

comment What are the strict set of rules followed by sensus plenior?
I posted an answer as well just because I do not see myself as ascribing to sensus plenior, at least I have no attachment to the term, but prefer to view it differently as a non-issue subject. I may be blind to modern views on the subject because I rarely read a theological book written before 1800s. My 'need to read' book list is so long that I have rarely ventured into buying a modern book. When I do I am usually overcome by boredom, finding nothing of interest to note. 'the sensus plenior' I just read had me interested for the first couple chapters, but the painful end came many yawns later
