Chapter Summary

This is the front matter section of the book titled From Qumran to the Yaḥad: A New Paradigm of Textual Development for The Community Rule, largely addresses the Qumran-centrism present in the study of the sectarian texts as a whole, and The Community Rule (Serekh ha-Yaḥad) in particular. To address the methodological study of the sectarian texts, and by extension the Yaḥad, the author uses Serekh ha-Yaḥad (S) as a test case, examining the Cave 1 and Cave 4 evidence as a whole. In doing so, the author finds new ways to explain old dilemmas in what has been the most informative, yet enigmatic, of all of the Scrolls. But rather than simply deconstruct previous and valuable studies on S, the book builds upon them, offering a new paradigm that nuances earlier hypotheses rather than overturns them.

Keywords: community rule; Dead Sea Scrolls; Qumran; Serekh ha-Yaḥad; textual development
