comment Is Jesus Christ the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit?
Ron - Many, many people would agree with you, but this is not the framework of this website. We want to limit our analyses to explaining what passages mean; if we opened the floodgates to creeds and dogma, we would be overwhelmed by noise. Everyone comes from some doctrinal background (everyone); in order to eliminate any "noise" we limit ourselves to interpreting the passages. The hope is that we can focus on the "signal" and eliminate (or at least mitigate) the noise. Again, many many of us agree with you, but this website tries to maintain strict adherence to just what the Scriptures say.

comment What does the Greek word κύριος mean in 1 Cor. 12:3?
Matiu - your answers are not off-base. They are just too loose. A more aggressive approach would be to take the comment of Jesus in reference to David who "in the Spirit" referred to the LORD saying to my Lord (Matthew 22:43). That kind of analysis would be more "tight" from a grammatical perspective and thus not so loosey-goosey. Again, your observations are valid and relevant, but they are too loose (not to mention the lack of any references, since we all know that someone somewhere sometime has already looked at this issue and done some research of some sort). Thanks.

Augustine - thank you for your input. Each and every one of us comes from different traditions (to include Jewish). We want to know what the text says so that we can come to our own conclusions about the ethical and theological results. In other words, we dig into the texts and let the texts speak for themselves. Remember: these Biblical texts have existed and survived for millennia, so it is important to be careful that we interpret them to the best of our ability (but with not so much reliance on the opinions of opinions of opinions which form much of what we call our own traditions).

comment How many times does the Hebrew word הֵילֵל (heilel) occur in the Masoretic text?
@H3br3wHamm3r81 - Mike, the only way I can explain this to you is by writing a diagram. (If I recall, the advice to me from Jack Douglas was "More diagrams!") This diagram is my reasoning as to why Gérard Weil (composer of the Masorot for the BHS) had annotated "Mp sub loco" for Jer 47:2. (The term means that Weil had seen an apparent problem in the Masorah Parva of the Masoretic Text.) Please click here to review the diagram explanation. Very Respectfully,
