comment How can we understand differences between NWT and Latin/Greek on Acts 20:28?
It may also be worth noting that Hort conjectured that the word Son was in the original, but that it was lost very early and no longer appears in the manuscript record. This is a conjecture, and is not backed up by any manuscript evidence.

comment What are the major variations of the “double-fulfillment” hermeneutic?
At the very least include a footnote, as the NASB does. Also, this is not a simple Jewish/Christian split, for example the NRSV uses "young woman."

Even if you want to use this as your example, you should still use an accurate translation.

comment What are the arguments against the authenticity of “Peter's” sermon in Acts 2?
" it was in all cases difficult to carry them word for word in one's memory, so my habit has been to make the speakers say what was in my opinion demanded of them by the various occasions, of course adhering as closely as possible to the general sense of what they really said."

Great answer. I think the last point bears reemphasizing. The claim is not that Luke is acting unusually or in a dishonest fashion when he uses speeches this way. This was just how Greek historians wrote. Thucydides explicitly addresses this point.
