This wasn't simply a borrowed idea. The two part post is what appeared the JBL v.92. Except for the introductory sentence which served to segue into Dr. Harner's article, and the fact that the footnotes were included in the text parenthetically, the post was a verbatim, literal, word for word, line by line copy of the article that Dr. Philip Harner ([email protected]) wrote in _The Journal of Biblical Literature_, v.92, pp 82-87.
