Isn’t this like saying Mormon elders will give me a more accurate understanding of the history of their religion than non-Mormon sources? Jewish scholars have a pretty clear incentive to engage in motivated reasoning, with the goal of vindicating Judaism at any cost, no?

What’s more, being an expert in Judaism does not also make one an expert in cosmologies of the ancient near east. For that I go to the history departments of secular universities. I linked such resources already in the article.
