Critically, the tree also appears in Rev. 22 (esv.to/Rv22)

comment What is the 'cock's crow'?
this could be a good question, but it's a fairly low quality post as it stands. Typically on SE on general, I expect to see some work put into grappling with the question. There should probably be some elaboration, some reasoning why you'd think that it's not meant literally, and a Bible quote.

comment Is dispensationalism a theological framework or a hermeneutical approach?
Very well put. I've been surprised actually that I haven't seen the hermeneutical circle brought up on this site until now. Very relevant here.

comment “You are gods” in John 10:30-36
@Caleb, it sounds like what you're getting at is that you'd expect BH.SE to be more exegetically rigorous that C.SE might have been up to this point. Exegetical rigor is definitely called for; there were two main reasons that I skipped it where mentioned: 1) Where I skipped the reasoning, it was for the Psalm, rather than the immediate text in question. 2) I wanted to keep the scope of the question under control. It seems appropriate to me that not every piece of background information would need to be proved in each question, or every answer would be a monster.

comment Translation of κοπιῶντες in Matthew 11:28
Very nice explanation and well thought out. One question--wouldn't the active participle be "laboring", a la, "come to me, all you, laboring and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest", or similar? It's a more awkward construction, of course; just asking about how to preserve the grammar

comment Should John 1:18 read “the only begotten God”?
monogenes theos appears to be the best reading (due to a lectio difficilior potior), though, it would be more likely to take 'God' appositionally, to render something like "the unique and beloved one, [himself] God"

comment How does the Noah's Ark narrative relate to the Gilgamesh flood account?
I see this as potentially borderline. Whether or not you (or I) subscribe to them, there are generally accepted hermeneutical approaches that do take parallel stories like this into account when interpreting Biblical texts like this.

comment Is Keller's view of the father in the Prodigal Son parable a reasonable interpretation?
@hawkeye, I think you might be misunderstanding something about Keller's extension to the father. In his mind, "prodigal" does not mean reckless, but extravagant. So the father is not reckless, but he welcomes him back extravagantly, just as the son spent extravagantly. Likewise, then, God welcomes back his wayward children in a similar "prodigal" way.
