I was only saying that--like the massoretic of the Aleppo and Leningrad codices, the Samaritan Pentateuch was a medieval manuscript. I have no doubt that it--like the massoretic--reflects a very early form of the Pentateuch.


	Dr. Thompson;
	So, for those of us who do not have access to Hjelm's article, are you
	saying that the SP is a medieval composition, or a medieval redaction of
	an earlier text?
	Best salaams,
	Brian Roberts
