Chapter Summary

Elisha Qimron and John Strugnell published the editio princeps of 4QMMT (DJD X) in 1994. The title of the document, 4QMMT, was proposed by the editors in 1981. The palaeographic analysis of 4QMMT was performed by the editors and Ada Yardeni, who analyzed manuscripts 4Q397 and 4Q398. In all of the various interpretations of 4QMMT it is generally assumed that the document was addressed to a group of 'outsiders', probably the Temple establishment. In reconstruction of 4Q398, each column contains approximately eight lines. Scholarly essays written on 4QMMT have dealt mainly with the legal material of the halakhic section.

Keywords: 4QMMT; Elisha Qimron; John Strugnell
