Chapter Summary

One of the most striking features of Qumran biblical interpretation is the range and variety of the genres in which the interpretation is expressed. This chapter surveys the field of biblical interpretation at Qumran from a generic perspective, to demonstrate, the range of contributions that the Qumran discoveries have made to the understanding of diverse forms of biblical interpretation in antiquity. The chapter demonstrates the richness of the Qumran contribution to this field by examining six works of different sorts from the Qumran caves that interpret the Bible. It briefly discusses on the question of the continuity and discontinuity of interpretive genres beyond the boundaries of Qumran.

Keywords: antiquity; biblical interpretation; Qumran caves
