Rich, thank you for your words.
Digressing to something quite different, I though as I read the heading of your June 21st post with its reference to ‘El Elyon First Temple El-Shaddai YHWH Northern Kingdom Maccabees 597 BC 164 BC Joshua Southern Kingdom’ etc.etc. you might enjoy the work of the British Hebrew scholar Margaret Barker, who writes about Jesus’s constant referral to First Temple Judaism. Her thesis is absolutely fascinating and it is extraordinary how many things become clear about Jesus’s teaching. James is also an admirer of her work. ‘Temple Theology’ is a very good introduction to her thought. I highly recommend it.
