Dear Yigal,

While I wouldn't go to this extreme, they have a rationale. In any science,
that explanation is preferred, which requires less assumptions. Now,
Christian scholars introduce a major assumption in interpreting the Tanakh:
namely, that it could and even should be interpreted with a fringe sectarian
text, the NT, in mind. Since Jewish scholars don't require this assumption,
their opinions should be preferred.
This, of course, does not imply in any sense pushing someone out of this
field of scholarship, but rather inadmissibility of bringing a doctrine in
the field.

Best regards,

Vadim Cherny
