As time has allowed I have followed with much interest the discussions on
GRAFH and have even enjoyed the can of worms opened up. I'm not sure
however that I've read everything written in on the topic, so hope I'm not
duplicating anything.

Has anyone thought of the possible Hebrew word behind Paul's use of GRAFH
here? Could GRAFH be a reference in 2 Tim 3:16 to the k'thuvym (writings,
scriptures) in the triple title of the Hebrew OT, as a applying not merely
to the Psalms section but also to the whole OT?

Since Paul is writing to a Greek in Greek and making use of the LXX it would
seem to me that what he is possibly suggesting is that the LXX GRAFH are
just as inspired as the HEBREW GRAFH or k'thuvym.

Does this make sense to anyone else?
