Chapter Summary

From the beginning of the 1960s, the connections between the texts of Qumran and the Epistle to the Ephesians have been highlighted by biblical scholars. In considering the relationship between the literature of Qumran and the New Testament, This chapter concentrates on one text in particular: the family code (Haustafeln) of Eph 5:21-6:9. The publication of 4QInstruction may shed new light on the family code of Eph 5:21-6:9 and on the controversial origins of this text. The chapter follows the order of the pericopes in 4QInstruction. It begins with the text about honouring one's parents in 4Q416 2 III 15-19 and in Eph 6:1-4. Then, it considers the pericope about the relationship between husband and wife in 4Q416 2 III 19-IV 13 and in Eph 5:21-33. Finally, it draws some conclusions from this comparative study.
