Re: [John_Lit] The 'Ellenistoi'
After all your posts and energy, I have yet to
learn what YOUR perceptions are concerning the
church in Jerusalem.
All Judah-ites, some Greek speaking?
A strong blend of Judah-ites and Samaritans?
A blend of Judah-ites with Gentiles (and Samaritans too)?
Surely you have an opinion on the matter, yes?

Your suggestion here could have been appropriate if it was posted in
response to the very first one by George. Then, it might end up there. You
set the wheel in motion with your remark and now demand an abrupt
interruption. If some one else made your last suggestion it could be
appropriate. Otherwise, offensive. I don't think many list members find both
your comments, and I say only here, accommodating. You could handle it
kindly. And please no more chain reaction.
Having said that, I suggest to the rest of us to make our focus specifically
on the Fourth Gospel.
