RE: Translational Inconsistencies
Quote::My question to you, Nomad Man, is what scholarship do you have the proves your NMV is anything but faulty scholarship, opinion or an attempt to pervert the Word of God for your own purposes? I noticed you avoided answering some of the questions put to you above, concerning your scholarship. Why is that?
Quote: I have no formal education in Hebrew but have studied the language extensively. Though I have not received a degree, I am an adjunct professor in Biblical Hebrew for a University. I also have several published works on Biblical Hebrew.
Quote::Are you fluent in speaking, reading and writing, Biblical Hebrew, Aramaic Greek, and the other language requirements to translate the Word of God and can you read the original manuscript fragments, etc.? And who is on your translating team and what are their qualifications?
Quote:I am not fluent in modern Hebrew but I am able to converse in it. I am fluent in reading and writing Biblical Hebrew and yes, I can read the Hebrew text from the ancient manuscripts and fragments such as from the DDS.
Nomad man, most academics would suggest you would need to be able to translate and understand, such things as the original text of the Tanak by making use not only of the Masoretic Text, the Massorah, the Aramaic Peshitta Tanak, the Hebrew Samaritan Pentateuch, the Greek Septuagint and the Dead Sea Scrolls.
IN one of my articles which I am sure you have read if you read my Hebrew Roots articles, I consulted with some academics proficient in Biblical Languages. After consulting with the professors regarding James Trimm's stated Sources for "translating" his HRV, it was stated to this writer, that it is obvious that in order to even read/utilize the listed source texts one would have to know, "at a minimum, Hebrew, Syriac, and Greek". Certainly the DSS include the need for knowledge of Paleo Hebrew.
Now according to your own statements, aside from not being fluent in modern Hebrew, you only claim some knowledge in Biblical Hebrew, but you know neither Greek or aramaic/syriac -which I am sure if I am recalling correctly - are also necessary languages for the DSS.
Here's the DSS that require knowledge of Greek:
All of the Cave 7 material LXX Exodus (7Q1)and the Jeremiah Epistle (7Q2) and 7Q3-19. Fragments of LXX Leviticus (4Q119 leather; 4Q120 Papyrus), Numbers (4Q121) and Deut (4Q122) from Cave 4. See Skehan, PW and Ulrich, E DJD IX (1992) pp161-197 and Baillet, M, etal DJD 111 (1962) pp142-146.
Quote:Though I have not received a degree, I am an adjunct professor in Biblical Hebrew for a University. I also have several published works on Biblical Hebrew.
Nomad man , I am sure you are aware of the many who claim inflated credentials within the Hebrew Roots movement, so I must ask you to be more specific.
If you are "adjunct professor in Biblical Hebrew for a University"--no need to be shy, please do tell, what that University is and where it is?
And how long have you been a professor there, because claiming a professorship implies having a Phd in Hebrew or Biblical languages.
3John 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
