comment Is there tradition in Judaism about seeing God through nine mirrors?
I actually think this a good question related to the Jewish culture at the time of Christ as it illustrates the Haggadah styled interpretations that existed at the time, which the Apostles did not use in the New Testament. You could get a Jewish answer on judaismSE but it also works well for illustrating New Testament Jewish culture which is why Christian commentaries and lexicons often refers to these curious little beliefs to better understand the context of the New Testament audience.

@unregistered-matthew-7.7 - you can actually get owens work on holy spirit in condensed modern english summarized for but for some reason these versions don't include his sections on the gifts which are very illuminating.

@kurosch - When I use the term 'infallibility of scripture' - I simply mean a belief in 2 Peter 1:20. I simply mean the bible is not made up but is actually God's word. In this case it means when God said someone would be stoned, he actually did say that. If this is what you mean by 'literalism' then yes, you are correct. I am taking the Bible literally and request answers that do the same.
