Chapter Summary

This conclusory chapter of the book demonstrates how a textual-comparative methodology can be applied at both micro and macro levels to provide insight into aspects of early Jewish interpretation of the restoration of Israel in Ezekiel 36-39. The methodology was not only able to describe all textual variants, but also enabled us to provide plausible interpretive explanations for variants in Ezekiel 36-39. There are very few intra-linguistic variants between the three oldest extant Masoretic texts (MT) in Ezekiel 36-39. While these are later Hebrew Manuscript(s) (MSS), very few variants exist between them and the Hebrew fragment from Masada. However, there are a number of intra-linguistic variants amongst the three oldest extant LXX MSS, and many trans-linguistic variants between LXX (Septuagint) and MT. Our textual-comparative methodology permitted these variants to remain as a trajectory witness to some early scribe and/or community.

Keywords: Ezekiel; Hebrew Manuscript(s) (MSS); Israel; Jewish interpretation; LXX (Septuagint); Masoretic texts (MT); textual-comparative methodology
