Yesterday the FT blog saw much discussion of the Reza Aslan interview on FOX News. Today Timothy Michael Law, editor of Marginalia Review of Books, posted his spoof of the interview.
Timothy Michael Law has never been a Hellenistic Jew but has always followed the faith of his family heritage: Modern Christianity. He has now written a book about the Septuagint. The book has become controversial, as it calls into question some of the core tenets of post-Reformation Christian Hebraism, and even has the audacity to claim that the Septuagint was once used in the Christian Church. The book is called When God Spoke Greek: The Septuagint and the Making of the Christian Bible. And Michael joins me now from Germany. Welcome.
TIMOTHY MICHAEL LAW:
Thank you for having me.
Well, this is an interesting book. Now, I want to clarify, you’re a Christian. So why did you write a book about the scriptures of Hellenistic Judaism?
I enjoyed Law’s spoof. You can read the full transcript of his interview here.
