rent collection 03 11 This brief paper shows that in the “parable of the wicked tenants” Jesus presents his mission as one of rent collection, rather than in the far more common images of helper, physician, judge, &c.
This site replaces my previous website (fredputnam.org), which is now defunct. My goal is to make available materials on interpreting and translating Biblical Hebrew, the text of the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament, TANAK) and other literature, as well as in some personal arcana.
I intend to add articles, papers, &c., daily until I catch up with my backlog, and then to add things as I write them.
I hope also to add occasional "blog-style" posts on various subjects that interest me.
