Example text

A. Montgomery explains the discrepancy as follows:9 6 the Samaritans originally, adopting the `old-fashioned Sadducean position', denied resurrection, and so were considered as heretics by the rabbis. 10 2 The Samaritans were well distributed throughout the cities of Palestine, and in any case Samaria was less than thirty miles from Caesarea. It is not surprising that Origen was interested in their rich and strange tradition; what is surprising is that he does give them any place in his theology;' 0 3 he does not regard them as a separate nation or religion, but seems to see them as a sect of Judaism.

Photius also mentions a letter to Aristides in which he explained away the apparent discrepancies between the genealogies of Jesus in Matthew and Luke. A considerable excerpt from this letter is preserved by Eusebius,4 5 and further confirmation of his historical interests is given by a papyrus fragment from the Cestz4 6 and a quotation preserved by Eusebius and Jerome about the Hebrews' reckoning of years 4 7 It is against this background that we must read his correspondence with Origen; the Book of Daniel must have played an important part in his calculations, and he was concerned to establish the correct text.

Origen will thus have had no more difficulty, given his relations with Jewish scholars, in gaining access to the traditions and writings of the rabbis than if they had been written in Greek, no more difficulty, that is to say, than any Greek-speaking Jew. We should suppose that he learned something of the character of the language, and also some vocabulary, from his frequent inquiries and discussions, but it is by no means inconceivable that he relied entirely for his knowledge of Hebrew texts on his Jewish colleagues.
