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.
