Chapter Summary

The reading of different forewords and appendices of the long awaited volume of the editio princes of MMT by Elisha Qimron and John Strugnell has left the author with the impression of being witness to the quarrels of a couple who, after the love has become sour, are fighting for the custody of the only child. This chapter examines some of the concepts of the hortatory section of MMT from the perspective of the Qumran writings, to see whether they point to a Qumranic or to a pre-Qumranic setting for the document. The author limits himself to the analysis in a Qumranic context of two terms which appear in the disputed fragment and which provide additional evidence for determining which of the two positions is more likely. These two topics are represented by the expressions אחרית הימים and מעשי חתורח.
