      Once again you misread what I wrote. The assumptions that I noted are

      not MY assumptions. They belong to those (i.e, Jeremias and others)and

      others who say that the matrix of the LP is the liturgy of the

      synagogue, as you would surely know if you had any direct acquaintance

      with LP scholarship.

But, if you have a point to make that is illuminating then make it in your paper, or if you wish to share it here then do it. I wish you the best success in all your endeavors.


      So you won't back up YOUR claim that Jesus intended the LP to be

      something that was to be addressed to him or that "The LP is

      compendious pulling together" into "a single concise prayer formula" of

      elements that can be found in "various preexisting" Jewish prayers by

      naming these pre existing prayers and showing that what's in the LP can

      be found in them?.

      Why is that?

      JeffreyI simply don't care.
