I certainly had no unfriendly tone in my voice, I assure you. And neither
do I think that direct questions need long, convoluted, inarticulate answers
which die the death of a 1000 qualifications. A direct question received a
direct answer (with an explanation, I might add). I did not intend it
harshly, nor should it be takne that way by anyone.

a Greek student he has had, or is taking, some introduction to the NT

criticism or historical criticism, has he?
