    Tim Mahoney mentioned that eventually he would like for the HFS to offer classes to interested members. If this eventually happens, a class that I would want to offer is one on the length of the sojourn in Egypt. I can see that there are important foundational issues in the areas of hermeneutics, lower textual criticism (due to textual variants), and exegesis (due to issues with the text in the original languages) that are causing several of us to slip up and fall prey to the incorrect short sojourn view. A lot of time would be required to unravel the knots.
