Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the diversity of the halakhic section and the epilogue. It demonstrates that a parallel for the structure of 4QMMT can be found in Deuteronomy, and in the covenantal pattern of the biblical laws. Scholars far more familiar with Jewish law have tried to identify a unity in the structure and organization of the halakhic section without much success. When the vocabulary and the syntax of the halakhic section and the epilogue are compared, a clear literary diversity between the two is discernable. The two main sections of 4QMMT are of different styles and each has a distinct character. Attempts to try to determine the function and meaning of the epilogue of 4QMMT are considerably hindered by the text critical problems and the level of uncertainty of the epilogue's composite text.

Keywords: 4QMMT; biblical laws; deuteronomy; halakhic section
