Chapter Summary

Compared with the number of copies of the Psalms, of Deuteronomy or of Isaiah, the number of copies of Ezekiel found at Qumran is rather limited: so far only the very doubtful copies of 1Q19 and 3Q1, the meagre remains of 11QEzek, and the fragments from Cave 4, recently edited by Lust have been published. Since the influence of Ezekiel on the spirituality of the Qumran group has already been studied by É. Cothenet, this chapter examines the influence on the thought of the Community of a typical block from Ezekiel, i.e. chs. 40–48, known as the “Torah of Ezekiel”. The simplest way to begin is to examine the interpretation of Ezek 44:15 in the Damascus Document, given that in this case we have all the elements needed to get to the heart of Qumran interpretation and the application of that interpretation to understand another biblical text.
