Survivals from Israelite religion?

RELIGION PROF: Religion in Galilee and Judaea (James McGrath).
One of the ideas I am exploring in connection with my research on the historical John the Baptist, and which I already make some reference to in my book What Jesus Learned from Women, is the persistence of Israelite traditions of a variety of sorts in a range of places including Galilee as well as Egypt and Mesopotamia.


I think this idea has some mileage to it. I have commented further here.
