comment Was Intermarriage Permissible at the time of Tanakh?
@Ypnypn - No, this question is assuming that, and is asking about a specific Halacha.

comment When Tana“ch uses the phrase ”until today" what does it mean?
If you have access to Bar Ilan Responsa, you could search for "עד היום הזה" in the מפרשי תנך, and see what comes up. (251 results, and I don't have time to look at them all right now.)

comment Was Intermarriage Permissible at the time of Tanakh?
Joseph has been removed. || Clarification Re Rambam: I accept the Rambam as evidence that such an opinion exists. I'm questioning the validity of that opinion, especially given that the Rambam doesn't cite any sources, and since he lived 1500 years after the era in question, he doesn't count as a primary source.

comment When Tana“ch uses the phrase ”until today" what does it mean?
For example, both במדבר פרק כב פסוק ל: וַתֹּאמֶר הָאָתוֹן אֶל-בִּלְעָם, הֲלוֹא אָנֹכִי אֲתֹנְךָ אֲשֶׁר-רָכַבְתָּ עָלַי מֵעוֹדְךָ עַד-הַיּוֹם הַזֶּה--הַהַסְכֵּן הִסְכַּנְתִּי, לַעֲשׂוֹת לְךָ כֹּה; וַיֹּאמֶר, לֹא. and שמואל א פרק יב פסוק ב: וְעַתָּה הִנֵּה הַמֶּלֶךְ מִתְהַלֵּךְ לִפְנֵיכֶם, וַאֲנִי זָקַנְתִּי וָשַׂבְתִּי, וּבָנַי, הִנָּם אִתְּכֶם; וַאֲנִי הִתְהַלַּכְתִּי לִפְנֵיכֶם, מִנְּעֻרַי עַד-הַיּוֹם הַזֶּה. means "until now" in the context of the story.

There are around 70 examples of this phrase. P'shat seems to be "until the day this text was written," similar to the phrase "as of the time of publication" in modern-day newspapers, but it really depends on context. See comments on parsha.blogspot.com/2010/09/…

comment Why are Shabbat loopholes a good thing?
@Ypnypn Yom Kippur is the most ascetic day in Judaism. We're supposed to be like angels. Also, ועניתם את נפשותיכם
