My first thought was that rs left out an "n" and he meant to say "signals". But that didn't compute far as demonology goes.

The Greeks.

Don't you understand history? You never heard of Alexander the Great?

What did he do? Well, he conquered the known world. Then he died and his domain was parceled out to Greeks.

Who ruled the Levant? Greeks

Who lives in the Levant? Jews

Why do you think there's a Septuagint?

Think man, think! The Jews weren't speaking Hebrew, they were all speaking Greek

That's why you have a Septuagint.

If Jews are adopting Greek language, which is a function of Greek culture, what else are they adopting?

It's not Quantum String Theory. The Jews are adopting Greek mythology. Greek mythology heavily influences Jewish theology, and also later Christian theology. Where were all the early Christian churches? All in Greece. Yeah, the map says "Turkey" now, but that was Greece back then. The Turks wouldn't come along for another 1,200 years.

Hell, devils, demons and whatnot are all Greek influence.

Why do you think there's a Byzantine school? That's the influence of Greek culture on early Christian manuscripts. The Caesarean, Coptic, Alexandrian and other schools show the influence of those cultures on early Christian manuscripts.

And, no, they do not agree. There are differences in questions related to the divinity of Jesus, the "virgin birth" and the crucifixion and resurrection and other religious and philosophical themes raised in the manuscripts.

Those manuscripts reflect the culture and belief systems where they were written.

If you don't understand that, you'll never understand Luke.

Why do you think Luke exclusively quotes the Septuagint?

Because Luke has never seen the Hebrew texts, and it wouldn't matter if he did, because he spoke Greek, not Hebrew.

That begs the question, would the Pharisees really be wowed by some joker quoting the Septuagint?

No.

In spite of Luke's pedantic musings, the Pharisees, who are Hebrew through-and-through and don't speak Greek and rely solely on the Hebrew Masoretic text, wouldn't even be remotely impressed by some moron quoting a text that they reject.

Even more so, since the Septuagint conflicts heavily with the Masoretic texts.

Anyway, that stuff is totally absent from earlier Hebrew texts, because none of it exists until the Hebrews come into contact with the Greeks, and their culture is dominated by Greek culture, then later by Roman culture, which really wasn't all that much different than Greek culture.

Yes. I do it all the time.

Demons make excellent opponents on multiplayer online video games.
