Chapter Summary

Having properly understood the relationship between cols. 1 and 2, as well as the sequence of the war, one must then consider the rest of M in an effort to understand what it seeks to communicate about the forty year eschatological war. This chapter focuses on the minutiae of the War of the Divisions: its time-line and the process for conscription (col. 2), the armys composition and its weaponry (cols. 37), tactical issues (cols. 79), and finally, its liturgical elements (cols. 1014). This is followed by a kind of appendix (col. 1519), sequentially going back in time for the purpose of providing details of the War against the Kittim, especially there where they diverge from the instructions for the War of the Divisions.

Keywords: 1QM; eschatological war; War against the Kittim; War of the Divisions
