Please take time to see the hyperlinks and see if you can introduce hyperlinks yourself into your own comments. If you need help in hyperlinking, please click on the question mark or search function in order to see how you can include hyperlinks into you responses. Thanks!

comment What are the crooked things that can't be made straight? (Ecclesiastes 1:15)
It is difficult to read the single paragraph response. You have an approach to the question, but there is difficulty to accept your view because you do not provide your analysis of how and why you came to your view. If your intent is to influence us to approach the text through your lens, then you want to help us to see how & why you arrived at your view. That is, your expository analysis can persuade us to change our view to your view. Without this approach to analysis, we are only expressing our sincere heartfelt views. Please see our tour.

Kris - Thank you. Can you hyperlink your verse references for us so that readers can view them online? (Also, please see our tour if you have done so already.) Also, what are your thoughts at the appearance of Jesus in heaven as one slain in Rev 5:6 ? In this regard, many people did not recognize Jesus after his resurrection - was this because of his defaced facial and body features?

comment Was there some connection between barley bread and Gideon in the mind of the Midianites?
Bonnie - thank you for your sincere and heartfelt response. In the absence of any knowledge of the future, how would the Midianites have had any idea that the bread was a sign of something evil for them? (I understand the symbology for us today (which you make very clear) but how and why did the image of this bread strike fear into them with little to no time to consider its meaning? In other words, what was the trigger for these Midianites to correlate the bread with Gideon? The reason we are focused on that is that there may be something very important here. What are your thoughts?

Ms. Sophie - can you provide us any references to midrash, Talmud, or Scripture? For example, how do you see the rise and fall of Gentile nations in this passage (through the appearance of something like the "Son of Man"?). Thanks! Also, please peruse our website tour if and when you have a moment.

Ashley - thank you for your commentary and update. But could you provide us more analysis? In this way, we would feel more confident that your approaches make sense to you as much as to us. If you do not provide analysis (references, language, parallels, etc.) then we are expressing our views which we cherish, but without references to help others understand how and where we arrived at those views. Hope that makes sense. Also, please view the tour when you have a moment, if you have not done so already. Thanks!

comment What type of “dragon” is implied by the seven headed serpent of revelation?
Ken - thank you for your response. To gain points for your answers, please amplify your answer with more details. For example, why do the heads of the dragon appear with crowns, and then later the horns have the crowns instead? What we want is your analysis of the passage. For the Book of Revelation, which is full of images, one must adopt some sort of approach to explain the images. Can you provide us more detail of what you see? Please do not cut-and-paste various commentators, but tell us what you see and understand with clear references and logic. Thanks!
