the dangerous, life-threatening element in the text

Jeffery Hodges responds:
Well, my question concerned an 'orthodox' scholar. I
didn't define that term, so it probably wasn't
entirely clear what I was asking. I meant the sort of
scholar for whom it would not be possible to treat the
text in the way that you suggest.>>
Just wanted you to know that I loved this response!
