  1. Hello
    I saw that you were a specialist in the Hebrew Bible and Dead Sea Scrolls. I’m having a hard time in a very important research and thought that you might help, if you want, of course. I need the original name of Mikhael or Miguel. Yes, the angel. I don’t know what you call him in England, but I really need the original name. Could you help me, please?
    Thank you for your time.
    Eliah

    1. The Hebrew name is מיכאל Mikhael, which means “Who is like El?” (= “Who is like God?”). It is attested in the first manuscript of the Book of Enoch, which I edited in this book.

  2. Is there a transcript of THE HEBREW BIBLE AND THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS (2009) that is available for purchase?

    Thank you,
