Regarding "The hand of the Lord was upon him" Blumrich says, "The investigation of the actual meaning of this expression does not belong among the objectives of this book. Its mention is nevertheless necessary because it occurs exclusively in encounters with the spacecraft."

Again, these are absolutely ridiculous statements that prove Blumrich's fundamental errors in his analytical approach!

Blumrich's failure to perform an "investigation of the actual meaning" is a fatal flaw in his analysis. A proper textual analysis shows that the phrase "the hand of the Lord was upon him" also occurs in Second Kings, First Chronicles and Ezra in contexts that clearly have nothing to do with spacecraft. His failure to understand that books of the Bible must be interpreted as a group and not as writings of an isolated author, is another fundamental flaw.

Indeed, this is not something unique to interpretation of the Jewish scriptures. Authors from a common literary, philosophical or educational tradition frequently use themes or phrases with the intent of tying in to that common tradition including the works of other authors.

The same total lack of familiarity with how to analyze text ruins Blumrich's attempt to interpret "spirit".
