Just one question on this (which doesn't mean I accept the rest): How do you
account for the Samaritans accepting Ezra's Torah (with some minor changes)
when they never accepted the centrality of Jerusalem or presumably the
authorities there? Remember that we have evidence from the Elephantine
letters for a Samaritan temple from about this period.
