Chapter Summary

This is the introduction chapter of the book, which focuses on the reading of a major Greek manuscript, Codex Vaticanus (B), a copy made by Christians, probably in Alexandria in the 4th century CE, but later deposited and used in Caesarea. Ezekiel was used to castigate religious opponents of Qumran community and was the basis of Pseudo-Ezekiel, expanding on hope for the future with resurrection of righteous, defeat of enemies and peace in the land. It focuses on how the latter two groups may have read the text and so it only considers the others insofar as deemed relevant. The book is based on B, it includes some comparison with P967 and MT to highlight possible theological and exegetical diversity. The significance of differences in P967 for chs. 36-39 is discussed and in the commentary on those chapters while a number of "omissions" in P967 will be consider in loc.

Keywords: Codex Vaticanus; exegetical diversity; Greek manuscript; MT; P967; Pseudo-Ezekiel; Qumran community; resurrection
