Both our interpretations are logical.<quoted text>
Thanks for the response. I don't know of any verse off the top of my head where El is addressing the Elohim. If you are referring to psalm 82, I did see one translation that translated it that way. But the majority translate it as God among the gods(the judges etc.) And God didn't speak to them it was them being told God was in their midst and would judge them. That is my understanding. As you understand it, I would have to say your conclusion is logical. As I understand it, I think my conclusion is logical. That is if faith can be logical. But that is another discussion :)Just some of my thoughts n the matter :)
That is why I like discussing this stuff with you.
Note that in Genesis El says "Let US make man in out image."
Another plural conundrum.
I like the Jewish concept of the Bible being incomplete and having an eternity of 'problems' to discuss... with none of the explanations having the weight of "God's Word.".
It is why Judaism is called by Jews a "Tradition" not a "Religion".
I often think that not treating Christianity as "Tradition" is the greatest mistake Christianity ever made.
Always good to converse with you B-Man.
