A Theory of Everything New Testament
Thank you, David – looking forward to reading this.
Absolutely fascinating David. I look forward to reading your work. It’s probably an obvious point that these chiastic structures may well have been an aid to memorising the texts?
And I must share with you an insight into the design of the Menorah with seven branches, and insight that I gained while visiting the garden of biblical plants in Israel a number of years ago.
The shape of the Menorah and it’s seven branches matches the structure of a unique variety of the sage plant called “Jerusalem sage”, which is unique to the hillside near Jerusalem, in which the sage plants branches growing outwards in pairs, at an angle of 180°, in other words, it is a flat two dimensional plant, which looks quite bizarre. Probably the sage was burned during temple worship with a burnt offerings.
The title is intriguing and I look forward to a good read. Thanks for making it available.

Thank you so very much for this enormously generous, and very welcome, gesture. I look forward to reading your attached book asap – the title’s terrific, and the dedication is very touching.

Thank you for so generously providing an electronic version of your most recent work. Of course some of the detail will prove controversial, but what I take to be your main point about the Gospels – that they are each carefully planned and distinctive compositions – is convincing. And your attention to the Fall of Jerusalem with the question why it appears to have made so little impact on the NT, is a subject we need to engage with.
With best wishes,
David T. N. Parry
