comment How to reconcile Luke 2:11 and Acts 2:36?
Scripture makes it plainly evident when and how the Lord Jesus was anointed. See Acts 10:38.

comment Does Mark 5:27-28 contain an allusion to Malachi 4:2?
@Susan: Take a look at LSJ's entry on πτέρυξ, A, II, (1): "in pl.,= πτερύγια"

comment Does those who obey him just mean believe (not reject him) in Hebrews 5:9
Belief entails obedience. One cannot claim to believe in Jesus if they don't obey his commandments. He is our master; we are his slaves/servants, which means we must submit to his will in our lives. ὑπακούω occurs in Heb. 5:9 and also Heb. 11:8, where it says that Abraham obeyed God commandments.

comment Does Mark 5:27-28 contain an allusion to Malachi 4:2?
@Susan: See Num. 15:38. πτερύγια, which may indeed mean "wings," can also refer to the "borders" of a garment. Upon these borders, the Israelites placed "fringes." When she touched his garment, she may have touched the borders thereof, and thus the fringes. However, Mal 4:2 wouldn't mean "with healing in his fringes," but "with healing in his borders" (in the border of his garment).

Gents, let the votes speak for themselves. We all know the comments aren't that necessary. :)

comment What does 'love in the Spirit' mean in Colossians 1:8?
@WoundedEgo: Wallace, Greek Grammar, p. 247, "There is no need for the article to be used to make the object of a preposition definite... Thus, when a noun is the object of a preposition, it does not require the article to be definite: if it has the article, it must be definite; if it lacks the article, it may be definite." In this case, although the Greek lacks the definite article, the apostle Paul is evidently talking about "the Holy Spirit" and not "a holy spirit." Thus, the translators rightly supplied the definite article in English.
