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, youre 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 .
