RE: orion re: minimalism
With respect Jim, did not your first proposal contain this
" theory 1- the OT was originally composed in Greek during
the Hasmonean period by Hellenized folk seeking to
legitimize their claim to the land (land propoganda in the
most positive sense of the term). "
(This is the original spelling)
Were not my comments in direct response to that paragraph?

Subject: orion re: minimalism
For Ms. Leerner's benefit I will restate my earlier (now
1- the OT was composed originally in Greek
2- The function of the Qumran center was to translate these
make them widely available to the Hebrew and Aramaic
inhabitants of the land.
What this has to do with minimalism I fail to see.
What place a discussion of my so called "minimalist"
leanings would have on
Orion I likewise fail to see.
Thus, my statement of non-participation in a discussion of
Orion seemed quite proper. But if Avital wishes it, I will
gladly carry on
such a discussion. The implication that I am trying to
avoid stating my
views or defending them is kind of silly given my complete
openness on this
and other issues on this and other lists (as those who know
me know well).
