In late August I sent the following message to the list:
> As both Edward and I have mentioned, SBL approaches. And, as I have also

> section on the meaning of the "lead us not into PEIRASMOS" clause of the
> Lord's Prayer entitled "Testing Temptation: The Meaning of Q 11:4b".
> The paper has the distinction not only of being born here within the

> 6:14//Lk. 11:4 that provided the impetus for me to put some thoughts
> about it into [cyber]text); but also of growing towards something
> approximating its present shape as a result of exchanges about its topic
> posted here on the list. And it is because of how valuable I found those

You may now wish to know that (thanks to the kindness of Mark Goodacre
over on Synoptic-L) the article can now be downloaded from:


I mention this for two reasons. First, the paper has changed in many
respects from the version I made available in late August/early Sept.
Second, I am still eager to receive comments from any one who may be
interested in seeing the piece.
