orion 4QSon of God,N. Altman & Crowder

In the Minneapolis Star Tribune, 28 March (searchable via
http://www.startribune.com  ), "Research Challenges Dead Sea Scrolls
Origin," Neil Altman and David Crowder wrote that 4QSon of God (4Q246)
cannot be a first century BCE text, because, they propose, Jews then would
not or could not have written such a text. They claim it is a later,
Christian text. I suggest that they are mistaken and that they have
misinformed some Minnesota readers. I won't argue that in detail
now--perhaps someone else will--because a detailed response on their claim
concerning red ink brought no clear retraction.
