The Exegetical Texts

Full Product Description

Jonathan G. Campbell provides an introduction to eight sectarian manuscripts from among the Qumran Dead Sea Scrolls that can loosely be called the "Exegetical Texts". He examines their contents, background, genre, and significance and he provides a history of the relevant research. "The Exegetical Texts" constitute a particularly diverse strand of sectarian compositions among the Qumran Dead Sea Scrolls. For this reason, the eight documents are treated in turn in more or less equal measure, with two introductory chapters to set the scene and a conclusion drawing the discussion to a close. Each chapter can be read either alone in its own right or together with the others to gain a broader picture. In order to encourage the reader to encounter the relevant Qumran documents firsthand extensive listings of editions in Hebrew and English are provided. The contributors to the "Companion to the Qumran Scrolls" series take account of a wide range of relevant and recently published texts and provide extensive bibliographies. The books in the series are authoritatively written in accessible language and are ideal for students and non-specialist scholars.

The Exegetical Texts by Campbell was published by Continuum in December 2006 and is our 55572nd best seller. The ISBN for The Exegetical Texts is 9780567045287.
