David Mitchell is a unique fellow. He is a Biblical scholar, expert in the Psalms, and an archaeo-musicologist. His important work on the Psalms, The Message of the Psalter, gave a fascinating defense of an eschatological focus to the Psalms, and is referenced in virtually every major work on the Psalter. Mitchell also recently released a stimulating work devoted to the Songs of Ascent (my review). His newest work is sure to be just as fascinating, as it is devoted to a little-known topic: the Messiah ben Joseph.

Well, there is an unexpected seven day gap in my Daniel 9 interviews! (Sorry for the terrible pun). When I first asked Wendy Widder if she could take part we weren’t so sure it would work out, but I’m very grateful that it did! She just sent over her answers, so I thought I’d sneak them in here since Davis has a nice conclusion to the series.
