comment What is the Fear/fear of Isaac?
This "fear" is reminiscent of the "fear" mentioned in Hebrews 2:15. There is a nuance worth consideration. Please click here.

comment What does Peter mean by “partakers of the divine Nature”
Mike, well-done (very exceptional) and I agree +1,000% with EVERYTHING you say, but I bristle when I see references to Systematic Theology and terms like Hypostatic Union (which I embrace 1000%). Is there a way to connect the concepts with verses? In other words, it is not what you're saying, but how you are presenting what you are saying, which appears as Systematic Theology. Again, I bow and sit at your feet in humbleness and Christian submission to your interpretations, but we are more on the hermeneutical side here. Very Very Very Respectfully Submitted, Joseph

comment Is it likely that there is an intentional relationship between ἐγένετο in Jn 1:3 and Jn 1:6?
@CamilStaps - The Lord created everything through the articulation of his word, which commanded all things into existence. That "Word" is the PERSON, by whom all things come into existence. (Paul leverages that concept to fit the PERSON into the Law of Moses in Rom 10:6-8.) In other words, everything exists through the "Word" of God, who is the PERSON of Jesus the Christ (cf. Jn 1:3 and Jn 1:10; Rom 11:36; 1 Cor 8:6; Col 1:16-17; Heb 1:2; Heb 2:9-10; and Rev 4:11).

comment How do you reconcile I Tim 2 saying that a woman is not to teach a man and the account of Priscilla and Aquila teaching Apollos who was a man?
@tina - in Hebrew הֲלֹא indicates a rhetorical question or politeness. Deborah uses the word when addressing Barak (Ju 4:6 & Ju 4:16), which has the force of "please," and so she was not commanding Barak, but deferring in respect. Please see Biblical Hebrew Syntax (Winona Lake: Eisenbrauns, 1990), p. 684, fn. 48. Finally, she includes him among those who "led" Israel while excluding herself (Ju 5:9). Please see the lexicon discussion, ref. para (3), of פָּרַע here; she was among those who "followed."

comment What is the meaning of 'said' and 'whispered' from Luke 12:2,3?
Don - thank you for your exposition, but you missed Matthew 10:26-27, which are the exact parallel verses to Luke 12:2-3. In other words, what is "hidden" is the mystery of the gospel, which Jesus speaks to us. Can you revise your comments to include Matthew 10:26-27, and relate how the meaning fits into your exposition? Thank you - Very Respectfully, Joseph
