How do I read your display name? Exactly as it sounds, of course :P (it says "My name is Dan" in broad, phonemic IPA transcription).

comment Elohim - Female Image of G-d
not at all - it is perfectly fine, but each site will have to determine if the question fits in their scope. I edited it to better fit our site, but it may already be answered by another question on BH.SE, albeit not directly.

Be sure to check out the posts in the comments on this question over at the other website (Biblical Hermeneutics)

Thanks for responding @User (it verifies you're a human being and not a spambot). We get a little suspicious at postings from doomsday cults, it's been an issue in the past.

FYI this was posted at BH.SE also, we're wondering if it's a genuine question or thinly veiled spam.

comment What sources, prior to the 19th century, support or refute the existence of the Council of Jamnia/Yavneh?
Thanks @MonicaCellio ! I actually anticipated crickets on this question. I'm pretty confident this council was invented by a historian in 1871, despite his claim to have drawn on Mishnaic and Talmudic sources.

comment What ancient sources discuss the meaning of Psalm 22?
@ba Ok, gotcha. I was confused at first because I didn't know who Yonasan was, but I though better of editing it in case there was a good explanation like this (I am only a beginner in Hebrew, took only a couple semesters). Thank you for clarifying!

@ba thanks for the update. I didn't want to edit your answer as it is a simple typo, but I believe you mean Targum Yonatan, not Yonasan ;) Thanks again for your response! I appreciate it!

It says, "Our Sages, however, interpreted it as referring to Esther (Mid. Ps. 22:1, Meg. 15b)." Where could I find these works. I do not know what the abbreviations are for.

How old is Rashi's commentary? I was hoping to find something BCE.

Hello @Zvi thank you for your enlightening answer. I was hoping you might also consider responding to this question concerning the date of these sources.
