Re: Literal translations (and trust)

As I haven't posted anything here in at least a couple of years, hopefully this doesn't seem like I'm sticking my nose into a conversation where I don't belong. The meaning of the Hebrew term in question (תְּחַטְּאֵנִי) largely pivots upon its particular verbal construction. Hebrew verbs are general...

Re: The Oven of Akhnai...

Greetings Emmet, Thanks for putting up with the long period of silence between posts. Hopefully the saying will prove true, better late than never. Currently, I hope to provide the greater part of a response to your last message. As I’m afforded liberty to do so, I’ll plan to respond to a couple mor...

The Oven of Akhnai...

Greetings Emmet, Thanks for reading and presumably taking the time to think through a response. The following is mainly what I had posted the other night; however, I did make a couple alterations for clarity sake. Having noticed mention of "The Oven of Akhnai" within the last segment of your post, I...

Re: “Genuine repentance”

Greetings Emmet,

Thanks for taking the post seriously. Shucks, if Steve Gregg approved - I'll gladly repost in the Judaism section. Again, I apologize for interrupting this thread.

Re: “Genuine repentance”

I removed this post because it seemed to be more of a distraction than a contribution to the thread.

My sincere apologies,

Re: Revelation 13

Without distracting from the context of the thread, I thought to pass what surfaced after following the trail of hints related to the rich man and Lazarus. A book by the title of Hear then the Parable: A Commentary on the Parables of Jesus by a fellow named Bernard Brandon Scott offered some helpful...

Re: "Is it not written in your law , I said Ye are gods?

Hi Emmet,

Though I have read your response, I haven't had much time online as of recent. As I'm afforded opportunity to do so, I plan to post another response - thanks for bearing with me.

Re: "Is it not written in your law , I said Ye are gods?

Hi Emmet, My apologies for the hang-time on this response. By comparison to Genesis 49, I will suggest that Numbers 24:8-9 is referring to the nation, in 3rd-person-singular as in 24:7a. In Genesis 49, the lion segment is plainly about the tribe, coming as it does prior to the mention of the kingshi...

Re: "Is it not written in your law , I said Ye are gods?

Thanks for the encouraging response, though nothing here is original on my part. It appears that Matthew did the work, and I simply tuned in, mostly by way of the instruction of other Christians. As you pointed out, Hosea 11:1 presents a difficulty in its usage of the perfect tense. Furthermore, a n...

Re: "Is it not written in your law , I said Ye are gods?

Although this is not directly related to the title of the thread, it seems worth addressing here in light of the previous message as pertains to #2. As I understand citing of Hosea 11:1 by Matthew, it appears to be well within the range of Hosea's reasonable intention. Believing that Hosea had a Pen...
