Re: SV: [XTalk] forgive us our sins in LP/DP
- Not at all recent, but on the wider context in Judaism
there are some collected passages in C.G.Montefiore,
Rabbinic Anthology, Ch. 19, pp. 460-469 on forgiveness towards
others. The book was on the shelf next to my desk so
provided some instant prompts.

- Just that forgiveness of sins is motif which has a context essentially connected to exile/return themes-
The OT moves its discourse on punishing the sinner alone (a theme already in the Gilgamesh epic and Hittite
literature) to a final solution with the forgiveness of sins. In the OT it is always Yahweh who needs to change, not men.

Thanks for this. But I am unclear on what you are telling me. WHAT is
a recognized understanding?
