Chapter Summary

This chapter offers some revisions to the readings of one of the manuscripts of 4QMMT, namely the papyrus manuscript 4Q398. The manuscript was first published in the official edition of 4QMMT, volume X in the Discoveries of the Judaean Desert (DJD) series, by Elisha Qimron and John Strugnell. The problems in the transcription of 4Q398 in the edition and in the composite text were first pointed out by Eugene Ulrich in his article The Non-attestation of a Tripartite Canon in 4QMMT. The changes proposed in the chapter bears significance for the composite text of the third section of 4QMMT, namely the epilogue. In conclusion, the careful reading of the manuscripts, resulting in some corrections in the editors transcriptions, combined with a synoptic comparison of the parallel manuscripts has shown that there are some serious difficulties in the composite text of the epilogue in the DJD X edition.

Keywords: 4QMMT; Discoveries of the Judaean Desert (DJD); Eugene Ulrich
