I don't say that the model they advocate is excluded. I am completely comfortable saying that the text allows for the model they have in mind. But I am not convinced that the text *requires* the model they have in mind. Because the word for "impute" has a very wide range of usage. In Mark, for example, Jesus was crucified between two thieves so that the scripture would be fulfilled: "he was imputed with transgressors." It just means "reckon" or "count" -- if you need the transfer-of-credit meaning, you can't just point at the word and claim that settles it. Does someone want to argue for a transfer-of-credit imputation for Jesus being crucified between two thieves?
