Forgive me, I don't have time to address your specific question, but just wanted to pass on the following quote from St. John Climacus:St. John of the Ladder (Ladder, Step 26:152):
"At the beginning, some of the unclean demons instruct us in the interpretation of the Divine Scriptures. And they are particularly fond of behaving in this way in the case of vainglorious people and of those who have been educated in secular studies, so that by gradually deceiving them, they may lead them into heresy and blasphemy. We can recognize this diabolical theology, or rather, theomachy, by the disturbances and the confused and unholy joy which are felt in the soul during the instruction."
It would also be good to read on this subject the critique of Archimandrite Touma (Bitar) on the heretical and blasphemous writings of the pseudo-Orthodox professor Fr. Paul Tarazi who has adopted the historical critical method of the faithfless pseudo-scholars:http://orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/fr-paul-tarazi-from-study-to-heresy.aspx
I also found the following to be a helpful summary of the overall problems with this approach to the scriptures:
Their mistakes fall into the following main categories.
1. Assuming that the unexplained is not explainable
2. Presuming the Bible guilty until proven innocent
3. Confusing our fallible interpretations with God's infallible revelation
4. Failing to understand the context of the passage.
5. Neglecting to interpret difficult passages in the light of clear ones
6. Basing a teaching on an obscure passage
7. Forgetting that the Bible is a human book with human characteristics
8. Assuming that a partial report is a false report
9. Demanding that NT citations of the OT always be exact quotations
10. Assuming that divergent accounts are false ones
11. Presuming that the Bible approves of all its records
12. Forgetting that the Bible uses non-technical, everyday language
13. Assuming that round numbers are false
14. Neglecting to note that the bible uses different literary devices
15. Forgetting that only the original text, not every copy of scripture, is without error
16. Confusing general statements with universal ones
17. Forgetting that latter revelation supersedes previous revelation
I realize that this doesn't address your specific questions, but I wanted to pass them on because they are applicable to the subject and you may find them of interest.
