comment Is there a way to express monotheism in hebrew language?
@Jim Thio: Actually, technically it's monotheistic. It doesn't say there are other gods, which would be henotheism. It simply says Yahveh is Israel's god. Taken at face value, it only speaks of one god: Yahveh. Nothing more. In fact, the Bible never actually says other gods exist, unless you consider demons to be gods. Some do. But, if we take god = creator, there is only one, and can be only one. There must be a first mover, someone/thing which existed and created everything else. And that first mover must be inherently eternal. Creation has to begin somewhere, at some point.

@JimThio: Fair enough. (Doesn't mean there are actually other gods, though...)

comment What does 'prayers' mean in 1 Timothy 2:1 as distinct from supplications, intercessions, and thanksgivings?
Witsius' answer makes sense to me. A lot of sense. You didn't have to accept it if you didn't think it was best answer. I was just wondering how I could improve it. But thanks anyway. It's appreciated.

Can you give me a recommendation on my answer? Is it verbose?

I would like to award you a best answer. But, I need to you somehow someway connect "God's unlimited grace" to "his fullness." I understand the commentary in your Bible is making that claim, but they too must have a basis on which they make the claim. I'd like to know the basis. If they cannot connect the dots, then I have to question their interpretation. The best answer will show the work.

Can you elaborate how you came to the concusion that "'fullness' is a quantification of God's unlimited grace"?

You're so right. Can't believe I missed the ἐκ. I need some coffee. :( Let me edit the original post.

I take it you're questioning my translation? Have a peek at the article I hyperlinked.
