Re: orion Code Words in Scrolls??

I would say that the code words in the scrolls are most likely a
manifestation of the apocalyptic style in which key figures and so on are
designated as symbols rather than as themselves.
Furthermore, that is the interpretive approach of the pesharim.  IE, state
a verse and identify the coded terms within it.
