Dear Dave,

This is a strange post because no named person is addressed.  Because 
an exchange between Vadim and myself was copied, it seems that I am 
the addressee. But then the post becomes even  more strange, because 
I quoted the words of the doctoral dissertation of Dr Cook, and said 
that I agreed. There was no claim that the question was finally 
settled. There are many valuable thoughts in the Archives which can 
be taken into account, but it is even better to study the text of the 
Tanakh itself.

Best regards


Rolf Furuli
University of Oslo
