a member who has TDP asked me this morning about turtles. I'm guessing 1) Cyril had a corrupted Greek mss and 2) he didn't know Leviticus well. But it still bugs me. Though I do love how he then sees Christ in the Song of Songs passage. Would that more people could see Christ in the Old Testament like that.
oh, and I thank the Lord that He has given me such Biblically literate members who would know that sacrificing a turtle would not be kosher!
UPDATE - my dictionary, in the second definition of "turtle", says it is an archaic way of saying "turtledove" (which is what Pr. Weedon said.) Glad to know that Cyril didn't get it wrong.
