comment John 6:37 - What is meant by “Father gives me”?
I'm not implying an order; rather, I'm simply saying that those who see and believe (not just see, of course, for many saw yet did not believe) are those whom the Father gave.

comment “A god” or “God” in John 1:1?
The Gospel of John was certainly written in Greek. If you read the Gospel, you'll note that the author often says things like "the feast of the Jews." He wouldn't say such a thing if he was writing to Jews. But he would if he was writing to the Gentiles (Greeks).

comment Based on Genesis 4:26, upon whom did Adam call?
In short, it doesn't necessarily mean that Adam did not know God's name, Yahveh. Rather, it means, that at that time, people began to worship, and/ or give thanks, and/ or appeal to Yahveh in prayer. But, if I were to throw something out there, maybe the phrase is an ominous foreshadowing. Just two chapters later, we see God destroy the entire world (minus Noach's faily) via a deluge because the whole world had been filled with violence and corruption. Perhaps Enosh was calling upon the name of (appealing to) Yahveh for help from the ungodly.
