Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the focus of investigation is the use of Scripture in the epilogue, both the explicit citations and the more subtle allusions to the scriptural source texts. The epilogue of 4QMMT is rich with references to scriptural language and the analysis of these passages will help to trace the theology of the epilogue, which has so far remained largely unstudied in Qumran scholarship. To date, the study of the halakhic section has defined the focus and purpose of 4QMMT. Scriptural texts are often used in order to reconstruct a fragmentary passage of the manuscript. Several late copies of 4QMMT found in cave 4 witness the importance of this document for those who compiled the Qumran library, presumably the community living at Qumran.

Keywords: 4QMMT; halakhic section; Qumran library; Scriptural texts
