comment Comparing a portion of 2 Peter 3:4 to a portion of John 19:25
I think the latter is an attributed genitive, not genitive of apposition.

I realize you have expressed knowledge in Greek grammar, so the elementary knowledge which I shared is more for the audience who reads your post, not necessarily for yourself.

comment Does Acts 13:33 refer to the “eternal generation” of the Word?
πρωτόγονος, πρωτογενής, πρωτογέννητος, πρωτότοκος, and πρωτοφυής are all synonymous, meaning "first-born" or "first-begotten." See pp. 8-9 of this paper. And it says "first-born" ("first-begotten") from the dead (ἐκ τῶν νεκρῶν), which is an obvious reference to his resurrection from the dead. –

comment Does Acts 13:33 refer to the “eternal generation” of the Word?
"Begetting is not an obvious metaphor for resurrection." Are any metaphors obvious? In any case, begetting and resurrection are linked in quite a few verses, for example, Rev. 1:5 where Jesus is referred to as the "firstborn from the dead."

comment 2 Tim. 1:12: παραθήκην v. 2 Tim. 1:14: παρακαταθήκην
I'm curious what their general meaning is, and with that in mind, what exactly are each referring to? The same thing? Different things?

comment Do 2nd Peter 3:12 and Amos 5:18 contradict each other in their advice in regard to the day of God?
του θεου is either "the god" or "God," but not simply the anarthrous and miniscular "god."

comment Does 2 Tim.1:16-18 imply that Onesiphorus is already dead?
"it doesn't seem to me that praying for mercy for one already dead would fit with Paul's theology." Begging the question. Nice try though. :)
