comment Is John 3:18 the words of Jesus, or of John?
My opinion/ belief is that John is speaking from v. 13 on. Jesus = first-person, John = third-person in that chapter.

comment In what way Jesus is God's Wisdom in 1 Corinthians 1:24
Is there any scriptural evidence that "wisdom" is ever a plan? Please define "plan" and cite relevant scripture in support of this if indeed it is so.

comment What did Moses do at Horeb in the first place?
While Paul says Sinai is in Arabia, there were three different "Arabias" during the time of the Roman Empire. Arabia Petraea, Arabia Deserta, and Arabia Felix.

comment What does “My Lord and my God” Mean?
There's John (the author/ narrator), and then there's two other "persons," if you will: ὁ λόγος ("the Word") and ὀ θεὸς ("God"; note the definite article). There's no need to introduce more than two people in the hypothetical since the context clearly indicates only two persons are involved in John 1:1. John is trying to emphasize that ὁ λόγος is God (θεὸς) in nature (or species, εἶδος), but he doesn't want the reader to think that ὁ λόγος is the same "person" as ὀ θεὸς. Every living thing can be classified under an εἶδος, or species.

comment What does “My Lord and my God” Mean?
θεὸς is anathrous in John 1:1 because John is informing the reader what ὁ λόγος is, not who ὁ λόγος is. For example, I imagine I am standing in a room with another man. John wants to tell an alien (play along) what I am. The alien is not familiar with our species. So, he tells the alien, "Ἐστίν ἄνθρωπος." "He is man" or "he is human." If John had said, "Ἐστίν ὀ ἄνθρωπος," the alien might have thought John was saying, "He is the man." The alien would have said, "How can he be the man (pointing to the man beside me)? There are two men right there!"

comment Can the word translated as “messiah” be considered a title when referring to Jesus?
@PatFerguson: The way you word it, it appears that "hoped-for" is instrinsically related to the meaning of the Hebrew word משיח or Greek word χριστός. The words simply means "anointed one."
