comment Does 1st Kings say that pi = 3?
I'm starting to assume this is the brim-protruding-outside argument, which I think is the most believable one of those assuming exact values of 30.0 and 10.0. It's just worded in a way that I have a hard time understanding (ESL, sorry).

comment Does 1st Kings say that pi = 3?
@MukeTever I don't understand what you're saying. If the circumference were 30 and the real diameter 9.55, then measuring the diameter on the inside of a .225-thick wall would yield 9.10. Can you clarify?

comment Does 1st Kings say that pi = 3?
Considering the range of widely spread explanations, and how some non-obvious and counterintuitive explanations are repeated over and over again, I think this is a very good question.

comment Does πορνεία mean premarital sex in 1 Corinthians 5-7?
@Ray yes, I do mean if premarital sex is included in the intended meaning. I'll try to clarify but others are free to edit if it's still ambiguous.

comment What's wrong with cooking a kid in its mother's milk?
I don't think this is a hermeneutical question. It could be asked on Mi Yodeya or Christianity but here it's off-topic.

@Richard I can't remember for sure, I think it's from apostolic.interlinearbible.org/john/8.htm
