Chapter Summary

The Temple scroll, one of the largest in the Qumran corpus, presents us with a rewritten and reredacted Torah. This Scroll contains numerous biblical passages which have been either copied or adapted and expanded. This chapter examines the halakhic variants which occur in the Deuteronomic Paraphrase of the Temple Scroll which are shared with the Septuagint (LXX). We should emphasize that these examples must be seen in the proper context. Numerous examples of halakhic variants between 11QT and MT exist which are not shared by the LXX. Yet the chapter is devoted to those which are. These examples will be discussed in order of their occurrence in the book of Deuteronomy, which is not the order in which they appear in the scroll. The chapter explains the nature of these variants and their value for our understanding of both the scroll and the LXX will be drawn.

Keywords: Deuteronomy; halakhic variants; Qumran corpus; Septuagint (LXX); Temple Scroll; Torah
