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 should we contextualize Paul's “Jesus is accursed” in I Co 12:3?
@rhetorician - yes, I agree that something along that line could/would have been going on in the background which necessitated the division of true utterances and teaching from false ones, in the context of a christian gathering with various elements of sharing, singing and the freedom of various religious expressions and gifts. They needed discernment in their charismatic experience.

comment Why does Psalm 103:8 use the dual form of אַפַּ֣יִם (anger)?
Actually you are exactly right on track...here is a quote supporting your concept..."An idiom for anger in Hebrew is חָרָה אַף. The literal translation of חָרָה אַפּוֹ is “his nose was hot,” which is idiomatically translated “he was angry.” A related idiom is “length of nose” > “it takes a long time for one’s nose to get hot” > “patient.” (Beginning Biblical Hebrew, Mark D. Futato, P131)". I have noticed the face is related to a lot of words. Just the other day I noticed the eye is also a spring cuz a spring is round with water flowing from it.

comment Does Hebrews 7 claim that Yeshu'a is Malki-Tzedek?
@JoshuaUtterback - Ok , I was not aware there are some who think he was literally the pre-human form of Messiah (I can only assume that is what they propose before the incarnation) and so I grabbed a quote from Owen to show the weakness of this view... as a priest for a human must be in human form which was the point of the incarnation, that Christ might atone for human verses angelic or sins from other races or forms. Assuming then that Melchizedek was just a guy, the rest plays out naturally and fits well into the original Greek by using the word similitude or likeness not actual. cheers
