Sorry, i overlooked a section...

OK, this explains my posted question: "[Why would your "Trito-Isaiah" insert
it, anyway?]." But if you're right, he didn't do a good job editing the text
of Isa. 45:1 where Cyrus is called God's "messiah."

Well, i'll grant that your characterization of the view doesn't make much
sense, though i can explain it fairly well (i think). But according to some
it would be "off-list," so other than the hints i've made already, i'll
leave it to your curiosity! :)
