Peter,

Yes, he does admit his view is a minority among scholars. But, that just tells me all the more to listen and study the issue. I could provide a pretty lengthy list of views that are a minority among scholars but are true nonetheless - such as there is no place called Hell. Personally, I find Heiser’s view considerably more persuasive than the majority view, but that’s me. You have to remember though the majority view was developed from scholars who had been limited to the available literature of their day. Not so today. The vast amount of new documents (such as the DDS) have many scholars reexamining their views. I suspect it won’t be long before these majority views are the minority.
