Chapter Summary

This chapter takes up a number of laws found in column 52 of the Temple Scrolldealing with animals. It discusses the prohibition on sacrificing blemished animals, the law of first born animals, the prohibition on muzzling an ox, and that forbidding plowing with diverse animals. These laws are grouped in the scroll together with the laws of slaughter which we have discussed elsewhere. The chapter deals with the relationship of these laws to the text of Deuteronomy, emphasizing the exegetical process that led to their formulation. It compares these prescriptions with those of rabbinic literature and will place these laws within the context of the Deuteronomic Paraphrase and the legislation of the Temple Scrollas a whole.

Keywords: Deuteronomy; rabbinic literature; Temple Scroll
