In light of the above, it seems quite certain that Reuel is a Rabbanite. His commentary and the Commentary on Genesis and Exodus appear to be the best representatives of the native Byzantine Rabbanite tradition, relatively untouched by developments in the Islamic world. The Commentary on 1 Kings is by a Karaite, probably Tobias b. Moses; the Commentary on Genesis and Joshua may be Karaite as well.
