Chapter Summary

That there is a specific character to the section at the end of the Temple Scroll which we term the Deuteronomic Paraphrase was already clear to the first editor of the scroll, Yigael Yadin. This chapter examines the distinctly Deuteronomic material at the end of the scroll, attempting to explain how this section was adapted into the Temple Scroll and how it relates to the canonical Deuteronomy. It presents a series of examples selected only after a study of the entire Paraphrase: Verbatim Paraphrase and Verbatim Paraphrase with Variation. The author of the scroll had an ideal plan according to which the tribes of Israel would dwell in cities arranged around the central sanctuary in Jerusalem. Most of the variations from MT in the Paraphrase result from intentional activity, harmonistic, exegetical, halakhic or midrashic, and most of these variations are the result of the efforts of the author/redactor.
