    I did read your article. I found it about twice as long as it needed to be, sort of like the 430 yrs to the 215 (or 195) years 😉

    You do seem to weight Ex 12:40 in the MT over other passages and considerations despite your use of the word ‘crux’, which you seem to use contrary to its common meaning (how did that get past peer review?). In my last semester of dissertation writing, I do not have time to debate your article point by point and I don’t think it would be interesting for others here if I did. In my experience, discussion forums don’t seem to work well when people are referred to external articles and links. They prefer direct personal engagement. I also offered some views and points (I copied some text right into the forum here) which you have not engaged with, so it seems we are squits 🙂
