comment What Christian denominations do not require belief in mainstream Christian core doctrines?
Though, I'd say that only your first two could really---in any descriptive sense---be considered "core" by the vast majority of Christians.

comment Why did only 4 people write about the Life of Jesus Christ?
If you were a first century Christian who believed that at any moment, Jesus would return and time would cease, you would take time to write a book?

Yeah, but more likely it was just anonymous.

3 of 4 groups, perhaps, but still not "most scholars."

comment Was Adam androgynous?
"It seems like Adam was created with both genders." Sounds like tension to me.

comment Why does the Old Testament never mention unclean spirits and demon-posessed people?
Yeah. NBD. I looked it up on Biblehub too—I was surprised it said ʾet was the def. direct obj. marker, because it definitely isn't. Internet fail. One more reason to learn the languages (as you clearly have)!

comment Why does the Old Testament never mention unclean spirits and demon-posessed people?
The main reason, I would guess, is that "demons"' and even "s/Satan" are--for the most part--not part of the cosmology of the Near East at this time. Very generally speaking, s/Satan is thought to be a religious innovation of the Persian period, and demons, the Hellenistic.

It is widely accepted that Satan didn't "exist" in the Hebrew Bible until the persian period (Job, Chron, etc.). This text is too early for that.

1 Sam 16:14 uses mēʾēt "from with" (min + ʾet) and all the others places the evil spirit is in construct with God/Yahweh. Pretty solid connection, if you ask me.

comment What is the specific meaning of “day” in Genesis 1?
Sometimes a day is just a day . . . Now, whether or not you think it's true, THAT's a question worth asking.
