Scriptures and Sectarianism: Essays on the Dead Sea Scrolls
$45.00
Essays representing ten years of John J. Collins s expert reflection on Scripture and the Qumran community are here collected in a volume that is sure to be of interest to students and scholars of Early Judaism and the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Collins opens with the introductory chapter What Have We Learned from the Dead Sea Scrolls? before offering essays on the authority and interpretation of Scripture, historiography and the emergence of the Qumran sect, and specific aspects of the sectarian worldview: covenant and dualism, the angelic world, the afterlife, prayer and ritual, and wisdom. A concluding epilogue considers the account of the Suffering Servant and illustrates the relevance of the Dead Sea Scrolls for early Christianity.
