      I have been enjoying this interesting discussion.  But I'm a little
      confused.  Are you saying Jacob Milgrom isn't a Jewish source?  The
      Anchor series is an interfaith work (including Moshe Greenberg of
      Hebrew University for the Ezekiel volume), and in any case Milgrom
      also writes for the JPS Torah commentary (the Numbers volume).  That
      seems to place his commentary on Torah as a reasonably Jewish source.

Sorry - I was comparing him to the great commentators, and the 
Mishna, and the Talmud, and the Kabbalists, I don't know how versed 
he is in them, in order to really understand, one has to be familiar 
with the whole unbroken chain of oral tradition, which was 
subsequently written down.
