Arnold Bogumil Ehrlich (1848–1919) , “biblical exegete. … From 1899 to 1901 his Hebrew commentary on the Bible Mikra ki-Feshuto was published in Berlin in three volumes. He subscribed the title page with the pseudonym 'Shabbetai b. Yom Tov ibn Boded. ' In the introduction he explained that he had written the commentary in Hebrew so that the Hebrew reader would study his words and comments. His book, however, received only scant attention. The Jewish press on the whole reacted to the book with exceptionally sharp criticism (also because of his skeptical attitude to tradition and his attacks on the medieval commentators) , and the Christian scholars, who had great difficulty with Modern Hebrew, almost completely disregarded the commentary. ” - 2008 EJ.
