comment Odd construction in 1 Peter 3:2?
Thus, it means that the wives' venerable conversation is "with reverence" (for their husbands; cp. Eph. 5:33). The idea is that women are to submit themselves to their husbands (v. 1) so that if any husband does not obey the word, those husbands will be won over by their own wives' conduct wherein the wives submit to and reverence their husbands (as the word commands them to do). Basically, when someone who is not obeying the word sees a Christian obeying the word, they are convicted and corrected by the Christian's holy conduct.

comment Odd construction in 1 Peter 3:2?
To note, יִרְאָה and its Greek equivalent φόβος, while they can simply mean "fear," may also mean "reverence." Thus, "fear Yahvheh" doesn't just mean be afraid of Yahveh, but reverence Yahveh. Likewise, the apostle Paul in Eph. 5:33 doesn't want wives to fear their husbands, but reverence them. In 1 Pet. 3:2, because ἐν φόβῳ is sandwiched within τὴν [ἐν φόβῳ] ἁγνήν ἀναστροφὴν ὑμῶν, it evidently modifies τὴν ἁγνήν ἀναστροφὴν ὑμῶν ("your venerable conduct") and not the aorist participle ἐποπτεύσαντες.

That's an unusual understanding of Titus 3:5.

comment 1st Thessalonians 4:13-14: “those who sleep in Jesus”
The translation of "in Jesus" seems untenable. I can't imagine why anyone would prefer to translate διὰ τοῦ Ἰησοῦ as "in Jesus." Anyone? Is there a basis for that elsewhere in the NT?

comment What is the ‘Wisdom of God’ in Luke 11:49?
Although it's a different genre of NT literature, 1 Cor. 1:24 identifies Jesus Christ as the "wisdom of God."

@JesusSaves: That all depends on which Greek manuscript your English translation is based upon.
