comment On what basis do some modern Bible manuscripts omit Matt. 17:21?
Did you say that Codex Sinaiticus is the earliest witness of all those that do and do not have Matt. 17:21? If so, did you not notice that Origen includes it, and he lived in late 2nd century to mid 3rd century (184/185 – 253/254)?

You answered the question that was asked, but you added some of your own insight. So, I must ask, what's the earliest witness of those that do not have the verse, and what's the earliest witness of those that do have the verse? You seem to believe that the earliest of them all do not have the verse, but I'm not so sure that's true.

comment Jeremiah 30:9, David as King
As much as it pains me to say this, and it does, you don't need to include the information about Jesus in your response. "This is not a Christian site," and since the question pertains to a passage of scripture in the Tanakh which makes no explicit mention of Jesus, there should be necessity to inlcude such information in your response in order to substantiate your claims. I do like that inclusion of 2 Sam. 7:8-13 though. :)

comment Jeremiah 30:9, David as King
Why does it make sense if it only refers to a descendant of David and not David himself? How do we know it does not refer to a resurrected David himself? You have to substantiate your claim. :)

comment Are the 'vessels of wrath' in Romans 9:22 'prepared for' or are they 'preparing themselves for destruction'?
Wallace would have been quoting Chrysostom's own commentary on Rom. 9:22, the English translation of which is accessible via sites such as CCEL.org. The Greek text is available via Migne's Patrologia Graeca. There doesn't appear to be a Greek text of that particular book/ chapter of Irenaeus though: textexcavation.com/documents/images/ah4p081.jpg

comment Pagan hairstyle forbidden in Leviticus 19, who had it?
"Interestingly, Avram also says the 'round form', as can be seen from original Babylonian statues of their gods, is where our modern day 'halo', Jewish 'kipa' as well as some historical 'shaven crown or patch worn by monks and other clerics' can be traced." Of course. Very interesting; thanks for sharing that tidbit!

comment Why does Jacob say “because I saw God face to face”? (Gen 32:30)
Well done, especially "Hosea 12:3-4 tells us that this "man" was indeed not only a מַלְאָךְ (melek; "angel" or "messenger," v.4), but was "God" (v.3) Himself as the messenger, the very same God (YHWH) that Jacob had met in Bethel (v.4; cf. Gen 28:13)."

Why do you suppose he didn't see God face-to-face (in contradiction to what he literally said)? And also, where is support for your claim that angels are "divine"?

You can drink wine and not become intoxicated. Wine is scientifically proven to be a healthy beverage when consumed in moderation. And in Judaism, wine was an integral part of religious rituals (e.g., it was consumed during the Passover seder, on the Sabbath, and during a regular meal).
