Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Biblical Qumran Scrolls contains table of contents, preface, acknowledgements, and a list of abbreviations and sigla that occur in the book. The book presents all the Hebrew biblical manuscripts recovered during the years 1947-1956 from the eleven caves in the vicinity of Khirbet Qumran. It provides the reader with the oldest and most authentic witnesses to the texts of the Scriptures as they circulated in Jerusalem and surrounding regions toward the end of the Second Temple period. These manuscripts antedate by a millennium previously available Hebrew manuscripts, and illustrate the character of the Scriptures to which nascent Christianity and Rabbinic Judaism were heir.

Keywords: Hebrew biblical manuscripts; Khirbet Qumran; Second Temple period
