Chapter Summary

Jubilees. 50:10-11, part of a passage dealing extensively with the laws of Sabbath observance, indicates that the only labor permitted on the Sabbath is the burning of frankincense, bringing oblations and sacrifices "for days and for Sabbaths". According to Jubilees, the Passover sacrifice must be eaten in the sanctuary, in the "court of the house which has been sanctified". The festival of Sukkot appears several times in the Temple Scroll. It is mentioned as part of the sacrificial calendar of the holidays in 11QT 27:10-29:1. This chapter investigates the festival sacrificial laws of the Book of Jubilees and the Temple Scrollin an attempt to compare the two closely. The Book of Jubilees and the Temple Scrollconstitute part of the world from which the Qumran sect emerged and in which it strove to attain its own spiritual ideals.
