Chapter Summary

The text of the Festival Calendar of the Temple Scroll is for the most part based on Numbers. 28-29 in terms of its general structure. The author adapted Num 29:8-11 which specifies the additional sacrifices for the Day of Atonement, that is, those offered in addition to the "sin offering of atonement". Accordingly, it is clear from our text that the author expected a total of three rams to be offered on the Day of Atonement, the one of the additional sacrifice of Numbers and the two of Leviticus 16. There is no question that the Temple Scroll is first and foremost a work of biblical interpretation, and we must see the literary activity of the authors of the various sources and of the author/ redactor of the complete scroll as aimed at interpreting God's Holy Scriptures for the Jews of the Second Temple period.
