Earlier today as I was wandering through Northerntruthseeker’s shop I stumbled over this gem.
I almost choked on my Elevenses.
Is it the dusty donkey drivers? The mysterious Apiru?
As the author notes, “I would even speculate the origin of the menorah is not even Hebrew, it could of easily been appropriated from another nearby pagan culture or one tribes fertility symbol adopted by the group.”
Good hunch I’d say.
Always keep in mind that everything, absolutley everything, is mysterious or clouded or obfuscated when it comes to us, the vulgar.
I’ll wager they know exactly who was who.
