comment Pagan hairstyle forbidden in Leviticus 19, who had it?
"Interestingly, Avram also says the 'round form', as can be seen from original Babylonian statues of their gods, is where our modern day 'halo', Jewish 'kipa' as well as some historical 'shaven crown or patch worn by monks and other clerics' can be traced." Of course. Very interesting; thanks for sharing that tidbit!

comment Why does Jacob say “because I saw God face to face”? (Gen 32:30)
Well done, especially "Hosea 12:3-4 tells us that this "man" was indeed not only a מַלְאָךְ (melek; "angel" or "messenger," v.4), but was "God" (v.3) Himself as the messenger, the very same God (YHWH) that Jacob had met in Bethel (v.4; cf. Gen 28:13)."

Why do you suppose he didn't see God face-to-face (in contradiction to what he literally said)? And also, where is support for your claim that angels are "divine"?

You can drink wine and not become intoxicated. Wine is scientifically proven to be a healthy beverage when consumed in moderation. And in Judaism, wine was an integral part of religious rituals (e.g., it was consumed during the Passover seder, on the Sabbath, and during a regular meal).
