Re: orion PHARISEE = Persian

    For what it's worth, I ran across the following passage at Epiphanius
    "They were called Pharisees because they were separated from the others by
the additional religious observances which they had taken on themselves.  For
_Phares_ in Hebrew means 'separation'. "
