Karl, if you check the literature on the subjevct you'll realize that this
statement is not factual. You may wish to start with II Kings 25:22 ff.;
In modern research you can look up Oded Liphschitz and others..
Dave Washborn worte, inter alia:
"In addition, I would point out that the Bar Kokhba letters, like the DSS,
were produced by a small corner of the populace that had a specific
purpose in mind"
If you looked up the Hebrew letters you'd find some suprises. In
fact, Y. Yadin, the discoverer, was amused to note in their
language a colloquial usage like that of modern Heb. (Instead of
pronouning ")et" only the "t" remains and is prefixed to the next word.)
Eliezer Ben-Yehudah in the intorduction to his great dictionary made some
excellent points on this general subject.
