Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Otherworldly and Eschatological Priesthood in the Dead Sea Scrolls contains the table of contents, acknowledgement and the list of abbreviations. The book is divided into two parts, each of which investigates central and pervasive images of priesthood in the Dead Sea Scrolls. Part one endeavors to uncover the theological meaning and significance of the notion of otherworldly priesthood in the Qumran corpus as a window into the distinct nature of the Qumran community and its relationship with the broader stream of Second Temple Judaism. Part two is dedicated to the numerous images of eschatological priesthood in the Dead Sea Scrolls. It investigates the historical and traditional roots of such portrayals in order to better determine their significance at Qumran.
