Do members have any opinions on this compiler or the Study Bibles he produces?  One of several books is the, " The Complete Messianic Aleph Tav Paleo Tav Scriptures".

From this bloke, Nope, don't have an opinion.

 

Ask you a question, why do you need an opinion?

Google seems to ignore the author except for many listings of his books which are published by a print on demand publisher.  Personally I've never heard of him or his works but then I live in a town of 400 in Wyoming so why would I :-)

" The Complete Messianic Aleph Tav Paleo Tav Scriptures".

 

I scanned through a copy of this book years ago (4-7 years ago), and it seemed to be a KJV base text with his own ideas added in.  Nothing wrong with that, except that he posits special import to the "Aleph Tav" in the Hebrew Bible (and maybe apostles' writings, but I forget).

 

I seem to remember that he posits that the Aleph-Tav combination ("et") in the Tanakh points to something related to God, the Messiah, or "divinity"--something along those lines.

 

That's simply not the case, and a cursory read through of his book proved to me that his supposed patterns were refutable.  Besides, the aleph-tav combination is understood by all grammars and lexicons that I've read to be either a sign of the direct object, or many times it gets translated as "with."

 

This is simply how Hebrew grammar functions in the Bible, and I see absolutely no "divine" significance to the thousands of occurrences of "aleph-tav" in the Bible.  There seemed to be a fundamental lack of understanding the Hebrew language from him.

 

But have a look yourself if you want.  Maybe he has changed his views since back then.  We are all growing and learning.
