comment In what way Jesus is God's Wisdom in 1 Corinthians 1:24
I think that Radz is paraphrasing the verse, not quoting a translation

comment What does it mean to be “born of water”?
Great work! Is this your own interpretation or have you seen a study along these lines?

comment What is the difference in meaning between Χριστός Ἰησοῦς and Ἰησοῦς Χριστός?
Can you expand on this? What meaning is intended to be conveyed by choosing one emphasis over another?

comment What does it mean that the least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than John the Baptist?
@Alex, when you say John represents the law, are you referring to e.g., Acts 19:4, where Paul says that John's baptism was one of repentance? Perhaps you could strengthen your answer by bringing in that text and interacting with it.

comment What is the 'cock's crow'?
So, Aaron, how do you understand the cock's crow occurring three times? Does that mean three dawns?

comment Did God make an idol?
Also, it may be beneficial to be clear on what an "idol" is--is it a forbidden image, or is it a false god?

comment Did God make an idol?
I find it interesting how you set up your question--you contrast man making an image in the form of a created being against God making an image in the form of himself. Perhaps man is not a forbidden image because God is not created?

comment What does “guardian/tutor” mean in Galatians 3:24
@MonicaCellio, not sure I agree. Though it may not use the method C. Ross had in mind, Footwasher's conclusion is that the law is a guardian, when OP asked if the law is being said to be a guardian or a tutor. Footwasher's methodology is more than a type of sermon; it's a legitimate approach that seeks to understand one passage by getting a broader perspective from other passages. Admittedly, a number of the concepts brought into this answer are not cited from other passages directly (e.g., how believers are Abraham's seed), and the answer could be strengthened by making that more explicit.

comment Is there any exegetical reason for believing the seven churches of Revelation correspond to seven successive “church ages”?
Mike, The idea that the earthly tabernacle is a copy of the heavenly one is explicit in scripture. Perhaps you could strengthen your argument with such citations.
