comment Who named the wrong priest in Mark 2:26?
As I said, that was an example of an unstated premise. My question wasn't the whole objection. There are many answers to this apparent problem that do not require that any of scripture makes a mistake.

How do you know, for example, that there was only one? We know that there were multiple in the first century.

comment Who named the wrong priest in Mark 2:26?
I suppose the question is unanswerable if one does not agree with your premise that one or the other is wrong.

comment Why would God disapprove of rituals he ordained?
Excellent. I've always read it one way, but don't think I've ever seen a robust argument for it.

To clarify, you're asking who wrote the hymn? Or who wrote Philippians?

comment Is there a scriptural warrant for the literal-historical approach?
Hi Bob. I think this is a vitally important question. We can't simply take any approach we feel like to reading sacred scripture. That said, this question is really too broad, as it's asking for a survey of an open-ended number of methodologies. I wonder if it would help to focus on a specific approach, and see if there is biblical precedent for interpreting the text in that manner.

comment Which hermeneutical approaches support a literal interpretation of the Creation account?
This is a very thorough answer, but fails to do what the question asks, which is to provide a hermeneutic that yields the 24-hour day conclusion.

comment Where is the citation of John 7:38 taken from?
Indeed; I was thinking of 1 Cor. 3, where the "you" being labelled as "a temple" is referring to the whole church. Still, allowing that the individual being called a temple is plausible, it is rather far removed from the believer directly being labelled a source of living water. Christ, on the other hand, is referred to as such both directly and indirectly, and the phrase "let him come to me and drink" strongly suggests that he is the source of water in mind in this verse.
