comment How do Roman Catholics and Orthodox Christians evangelize?
Almost certainly. It also works in the circumstances I've described.

comment How do Roman Catholics and Orthodox Christians evangelize?
Everybody is a missionary. If you're not called to be sent to foreign lands (which does happen), you do your bit where you are, which may simply be to let Jesus shine in your own life [all the while expecting to be asked the "Why are you like that?" question].

comment What is the “Leviathan” mentioned in Job?
I'm not sure this is apologetics. Might be better suited to Hermeneutics.

revised What is the “Leviathan” mentioned in Job?
Formatting (two spaces at the end forces a line-break)

comment What time is the “sixth hour” in John 4?
NIV takes the sixth hour to be the sixth hour after sunrise; Halley takes it as the sixth after midday. Lancon says it's the sixth hour after sunset (around midnight, I suppose). Which seems the most likely? Bear in mind that there are other time references, for example Jesus died at the ninth hour, when it was still light: this is generally taken to be around 3pm.

revised Is the nation of Israel itself a type of Christ and, if so, how?
The previous edit misuses the word "type" (cf "typical")

comment What was Jesus' soul?
@Mr.Bultitude His human body was formed in a human way (in a womb) and received its soul similarly; but the body was also fully divine (he was the Incarnate Word), and the soul was fully divine too. Both body and soul must have two natures, or the Word died with the body, which cannot have happened.

comment What is the breath of life spoken of in Genesis 2:7?
Would this not be better asked on Hermeneutics?

comment What was Jesus' soul?
Fortunately, we're talking theology not biology. Compendium of the Catechism, question 90: "The Son of God assumed a body animated by a rational human soul."

comment Fish on good Friday
Closely related, perhaps to the point of being a duplicate: Why was eating meat on Fridays forbidden in the Catholic Church for so many years?
