Dear Jim Stinehart,

Please do not put words in my mouth. I have never claimed that Hazazon Tamar
is the same as the Roman Tamar, at Hazevah south of the Dead Sea. In fact,
if you look at 2 Chr. 20:2, you'll see Hazazon Tamar identified there with
En Gedi, which makes perfect sense. This, however, does not make either Gen.
14 or 2 Chr. 20 "historical".

Is this city name at Genesis 14: 7 a Hurrian name?  Does it mean "the 
wisdom of nine"?  If XCC is the root of XCCN TMR, do you think that Yigal
and Anson Rainey have found a bona fide match in the Roman-era village
