comment How many “layers” are there to the Scriptures?
@Jas3.1 - You could say that for simplicity, but Protestants don’t usually think of layers as it implies a hidden meaning everywhere 'all on one layer, on top of the literal'. Some verses may have a single literal truth and no more. The literal is already ‘spiritual’ as it is infallible. Sometimes this is just semantics but as I have listed, each group has there own semantics and a clearly defined 'spiritual' layer seems to be primarily the Catholic semantic. Philo of Alexandria seems to have had up to a million layers and he has heavily influenced the Catholic Church compacting them into four

comment “A believers' virginity” or “a believer's daughter's virginity” in 1 Corinthians 7:36-38?
@brilliant - I do not know about the details of how the culture was back then with respect to Virgins. It would make a good new question. Whater it was Paul does not argue against it here. There are some Jewish members on this site, one of them would probably know about how that worked back in those days. Cheers.

@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.
