Chapter Summary

This chapter establishes the textual basis of 4QMMT and the epilogue in particular. It begins with a text critical reading of the manuscripts in order to determine how much of the halakhic material and the epilogue are extant. The overlapping sections of the manuscripts are examined in order to determine how much evidence the manuscripts provide for the composite text, and what material evidence we have for the unity of the three different sections of 4QMMT. The chapter examines the composite text of the DJD X edition in light of the results provided by the synoptic comparison of the manuscripts of the epilogue (4Q397-399). It evaluates the correspondence between the DJD X composite text and the manuscript evidence, and to discuss the significance of the variant readings for the composite text.

Keywords: 4Q397-399; 4QMMT; DJD X composite text; halakhic material
