comment Is there a difference between “the devil” and “Satan” in the Synoptic Gospels?
A weird fact, that I don't know what to make of, is that Luke doesn't really mix usage. Instead "the devil" appears exclusively in early chapters, and "Satan" in later chapters.

@ThaddeusB: You're right that 2 Clement makes my point more clearly, since, as you say, there are some people who think 1 Clement was written by Clement (I think you're vastly overstating how many scholars think that though).

comment Is there a case to be made that Luke wrote the book of Hebrews?
Just to clarify, there's no reason to think Luke the traveling companion of Paul wrote other books, but there is reason to think "Luke" the author of the gospel of Luke wrote Acts based on internal evidence. But there's no reason to think he wrote anything else in the New Testament.

comment Why does John the Baptist deny being “Elijah”?
Here's an interesting paper by a leading expert on the gospels that touches a lot on this topic a lot.

Thanks! You're right, I miscopied from consecutive sentences.

Found a better source with a complete listing of Greek texts from before 300CE

comment In what language is the oldest available text of Genesis?
You may want to clarify what you mean by "earliest available text." Do you mean the oldest existing manuscript? Or our best reconstruction of the oldest text?

@fdb: Perhaps the question should be clarified to make that point clearer? At any rate the Qumran manuscripts don't have this particular verse.

comment In what language is the oldest available text of Genesis?
It might be a little while before I get to put up an answer, but I'm pretty sure the answer given here to Question one is wrong. The oldest extant Greek text of Gen 1:26-27 is much older (500+ years) than the oldest extant Hebrew text. (Of course, the Greek is translated from even earlier Hebrew texts, but none of those are extant.)
