Chapter Summary

The author of the Temple Scrollhas radically reshaped the ordination rites of Exodus 29 and Leviticus 8. Starting with biblical texts very similar to those of MT, he has adapted the ordination rites into a permanent annual practice, replacing Moses with the elders of the priests and then with the high priests himself. He has distinguished between the rams and what for him are two bulls, one for the priests and one for the people. The thoroughgoing revision of the biblical materials made it possible for the scroll to fix a regular annual ordination ceremony in the sacrificial calendar. The blood rites are taken up in Exod 29:20-22 and in Lev 8:23-24, 30. The biblical description, deals with Aaron and his sons, the high priest and the ordinary priests. Yet the text of our scroll deals only with the ordination of a high priest.
