comment The grammatical tense of the verb “judged” in 1Peter 4:6
Nicodemus was chided for not understanding the new birth, which is the "washing away" of spiritual death. (It had nothing to do with re-entering the woman's womb, as Nicodemus inferred.) While the blood takes away sins, the water takes away spiritual death, which is why "living water" is synonymous with eternal life. The Spirit of God provides us this eternal life, thus the imagery of baptism. The physical illustration is water, but the spiritual is "living water."

comment What is the best translation of κατὰ κεφαλῆς in 1 Cor 11:4?
@Onlyheisgood. You can disagree with me, which is OKAY. But when you at the texts in Greek, and how the phrase κατὰ (τῆς) κεφαλῆς is used in the LXX or ScrTR, can you disagree with them?

comment The grammatical tense of the verb “judged” in 1Peter 4:6
@brilliant - Please see Acts 10:40-42, which is repeated in 2 Tim 4:1. Both passages refer to the judgment, which is yet future. The physically dead, who are also spiritually dead, will one day be resurrected to learn that their names are not found in the Book of Life (Rev 20:11-15). That is, the indictment was that their "dead works" were indicative of spiritual death. Since they are in physical bodies at this last judgment, they then are cast into the Lake of Fire, which, in essence, becomes the "Second (physical) Death" (Rev 20:15), since now they are physically dying yet a second time.

comment Was Job short-changed in the end?
Someone played a hoax on Job that his 10 children were killed not to mention all his 1000s of animals?

comment The grammatical tense of the verb “judged” in 1Peter 4:6
@brilliant - what did Jesus mean when he said to the disciples "let the dead bury the dead" (Matt 8:22)? It is not bad hermeneutics to say that Jesus was using "dead" in both the spiritual sense and the physical sense. In other words, Jesus said, "let the spiritually dead bury the physically dead." So it is not bad hermeneutics to see two nuances of "dead" in the same word grammatically in the same sentence. Otherwise, how would Jesus make any sense to say that physically dead people should bury other physically dead people?

@Onlyheisgood. I can only give you the meanings based on usage of the word in other contexts. You can always check the lexicons. What I tried to give you is the meaning associated for those people who would understand that word from reading Scripture in Greek.

comment “Spiritual Enlightenment” in John 7:17
@ScottS - Ah, my friend. Can the carnal mind understand divine truths apart from the Spirit of God (1 Cor 2:12-16)?
