Chapter Summary

The evidence of the Dead Sea Scrolls on the priestly designations "sons of Aaron" and "sons of Zadok" is one of the areas where the more recently published texts have provided scholars with a significant amount of additional evidence. This chapter looks particularly at the evidence of the scrolls on the sons of Aaron. It considers all the references to the sons of Aaron and the sons of Zadok in the scrolls. It is instructive, moreover, to reflect on the significant differences in the employment of the terminology "sons of Aaron" in the Community Rule and the Damascus Document. In the Community Rule the group is clearly priestly, but their role falls fairly and squarely within the community rather than within a national frame of reference, as was the case in the Damascus Document.
