As usual, Dhimmi No More's delving into explaining the Quranic mysteries in a way that gives a greater understanding of why it took 1,400 years of Islamic influences (thanks to Dr. Pipes for the calendar reminder) to alter the Middle East's diversion into the religious theater of conflicting ideologies, seemingly attempting to explain away why the religious proclivities of the time did not want to submit to the struggling Messianic messengers, now in faux Christian theological arguments of distancing themselves from the Jewish roots of the Messiah and inferring a more Roman (universal) based cause that made for an easy target by the up and coming onslaught of Islam hundreds of years later; the Quran was substituted for those that did not desire to be found under Jewish control.
The implications of the two seas (Hebrew Scriptures refers to humanity and its denizens as being represented as coming from the seas) might be construed as the two factions of the children of Abraham, the sons of Ishmael versus the sons of Isaac; decidedly a longshot, but remotely discernable when considering the factiousness it represents.
In any event, thanks again to DNM, and Dr. Pipes, for permitting these explorations into the fascinating (for this observer, anyway) realms of developing and understanding the complexities that at one time perplexed this reader; but now, it is discerned that the light at the end of the tunnel is not an oncomng train of disaster, but the illumination of truth that had been ordered hidden until such time (such as now) when the events of the day are part of the revelation that is now giving understanding as to why humanity its chance, but has wasted it on pride seeking wantoness in the darkness instead of seeking the light of truth in the sacrifice of love from the risen Savior.
