comment Does 1st Kings say that pi = 3?
Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics! This is a well-reasoned response. I too wonder why this explanation was so quickly dismissed in that article.

revised How should we understand the “Cleansing of the Temple”?
Oops. I decided to go with John's account, not Mark.

The article by J. Hampton Keathley, III is quite enlightening. It also makes me want to read Irenaeus, who seems a very level-headed character.

comment Did Jesus have the legal authority to cleanse the temple?
@transistor1: You (and only you) can +1.5 it. ;-) (But I actually prefer Monica's answer be accepted, so please don't do that.)

comment Is the person who “denied the faith” in 1 Timothy 5:8 still a believer?
@Richard: That seems all-to likely. I wonder if we could find a source for that...

comment How should graded numerical parallelism in Hebrew poetry be understood?
I'm sorry Bob, I really don't buy any of this. Plus the answer fails to addresses my question. Why does the author use progressive numerical parallelism? If it's about the Trinity, why are there four things, not three?

comment Does base-10 numbering in Genesis 4:24 argue against the Wiseman hypothesis?
It's clearly not literal, but I don't see how any of this answers my question. The passage doesn't say 70*7 for instance. For another, Jesus says exactly the opposite of Lamech. You have some good ideas, but this answer is a miss.

That's a lovely rabbit hole you made me jump down. ;-) The article mentions that to an engineer, π ≈ 3, which is a pretty good summary.

comment How does the Noah's Ark narrative relate to the Gilgamesh flood account?
Thank you for reference to the Wiseman hypothesis. I've read a variation of the theory, but did not know where the idea originated. Looks like a have some reading before me.

comment Did Jesus have the legal authority to cleanse the temple?
This is a fine question, in my opinion. It's certainly different from my question, which just assumed Jesus would not have human authority to drive off the money changers and sellers.
