Jeffrey's citations on wildebeasts.

In any event, I suggest that you read the texts of Ps.
91, T.Iss. 7.7, T.Benj. 5:2, and T. Naph. 8.4 and
then tell me whether your claim that the reference to
being "with the wild beast" makes no apparent sense,
especially in conjunction with the reference in Mk.
1:13b to "angels" ministering to Jesus and in Mk.
1:13a to the Satan.
Jeffrey if you feel these references are cogent to the
issue at hand please quote the text of the references.
If we were to take a poll on this list of those who
understand these references T.Iss. 7.7, T.Benj. 5:2,
and T. Naph. most including myself, would not know to
what you were refering? My entire argument is based on
the text of Mark itself why would I want to look at
SBL find out what Mark intended to say versus what the
text at hand does actually say?
I do not know what you mean by these citations yet
that does not disqualify me or anyone else on the list
from commenting on the text of Mark.
