comment Exo. 2:12: Did Moses commit murder?
So, my question is, why was the Egyptian (Exo. 2:11) considered a rodef, and thus killed by Moses, while the one Hebrew [smiting the other Hebrew] (Exo. 2:13) wasn't considered a rodef and killed by Moses when he came upon him, when "third-parties have the right to kill the pursuer," especially under Jewish law?

comment Exo. 2:12: Did Moses commit murder?
Good answer, Bruce James. According to you (i.e., the sources you cite), the Egyptian was a rodef, I assume, based on the phrase וַיַּרְא אִישׁ מִצְרִי מַכֶּה אִישׁ עִבְרִי in Exo. 2:11, in particular, מַכֶּה, Hif'il conjugation of the verb נָכָה. However, in Exo. 2:13, another event occurs, in which we find the phrase וַיֹּאמֶר לָֽרָשָׁע לָמָּה תַכֶּה רֵעֶךָ, in particular the verb תַכֶּה, again, the Hif'il conjugation of the verb נָכָה.

comment What is the new covenant made with Jews/Israel in Jeremiah 31:31
@BlessedGeek: Great questions. If you wouldn't mind creating a new post for those questions, I would love to offer my thoughts. I'm not sure I should include those in my post as the OP didn't originally ask them. My response is quite long as is. Thank you. :)

comment Are there any extant original first-century manuscripts of any of Josephus' works?
I'm afraid the question seems unrelated to biblical hermeneutics. Nevertheless, tertullian.org/rpearse/manuscripts/josephus_antiquities.htm
