comment Are the 70 sevens of Daniel 9:24 the fulfillment of Leviticus 26:18-33?
@JackDouglas - I took a stab at trying to salvage the question based on what I had inferred the OP was trying to ask. What do you think?

comment Does God send a “Strong Delusion”? What is the Context of understanding 2 Thess. 2:11?
Sir - would you consider Zech 3:1-2 an example where the person of Satan appears (as a name in the Hebrew Bible) versus the title of an adversary? You had mentioned that 1 Chron 21:1 was the only instance where the name of the person Satan had appeared in the Hebrew Bible. Very Respectfully,

comment What are the interpretive options in 1 John 5:2?
I am not sure that I follow you - irrespective, I do not see the discussion in the narrative in John as appearing tautological. The subjective aspect ("I believe that I know God, and God knows me") must have the corresponding objective aspect (that is, others see my love for them). It is almost as if to say that you cannot have a faith that solely exists in your own mind.

comment Exo. 2:2: “…that he was good, and she hid him three months…”

comment What is the new covenant made with Jews/Israel in Jeremiah 31:31
@BruceJames - Bruce we can go to the Library to discuss (to chat in low tones and gentle whispers).

comment What is the new covenant made with Jews/Israel in Jeremiah 31:31
@BlessedGeek - individual examples of Gentile conversion to full Torah observance were Ruth the Moabitess and Rahab the prostitute, who both were (extended) grandparents within the direct line of King David (Matthew 1:5).

comment What is the new covenant made with Jews/Israel in Jeremiah 31:31
@BruceJames - Bruce, please see Lev 26:42, which places priority of the Abrahamic Covenant over the Mosaic Covenant. The former was unconditional whereas the latter was conditional, and therefore replaceable by the New Covenant.

comment What is the new covenant made with Jews/Israel in Jeremiah 31:31
@BlessedGeek - There are two places in the Hebrew Bible where Gentiles in large numbers become explicit proselytes - Exodus 12:38 and Esther 8:17.

comment What is the best translation of Job 6:14?
@David - I owe you lunch. I hope that I can buy you roast rack of lamb with mint sauce, if and when I am ever in Scotland.

comment What does it mean when it says,“There is a sin unto death”
@Onlyheisgood. I understand your point of view. What I see is both the visible and invisible Kingdom of God on earth, since the believer is the temple of the Spirit of God. Please click here for an overview. Thanks again for the feedback.

comment Who is the traveler (guest) in Nathan's parable?
Brian - thank you for your comment. Can you help us to correlate what you said with passages from the Biblical Text? For example, you mention the two lobes of the brain and how the relate to our experience. Can you provide us Biblical references? This approach forces us to ask questions of ourselves as to why we believe what we believe in the Bible. If you can articulate and show how you arrived at your conclusions, then you will help us to understand. Otherwise if you do not, then we do not know where or how you came to your views. Thanks!

comment Translation of “Selah” (סֶלָה‎)
Hello, Jerry, and thanks for your post - as noted, if you could provide us more information so that your contribution can "stand on its own feet." If you just provide us your views, then anyone can assume that you derived your ideas from just watching television. If you could provide us some connections to the text so that your views do not become your views so to speak, but the apparent views of the Biblical Texts. Thanks!

comment What is the meaning of the shift from present to aorist in 1 John 2:12-14?
@Susan - I made the correction regarding the conjunction (thanks for pointing out). Also, 1 Jn 2:21 is a good example where the Apostle John switches between both meanings of the conjunction in the same verse with the same verb (and in the same chapter). Please click here.

comment Is “Children of Israel” the only way to read Deuteronomy 32:8?
Don - thanks for your input. Is there anything you can share with us that helps us move beyond observation of the text? In other words, can you share with us some information so that we can convince ourselves based on what you share with us? If you do not, we only have your perspective based on your first impressions. If you can clarify and provide more analysis... Thanks!
