Chapter Summary

More than sixty years ago, Eliezer Sukenik opened a large scroll from Cave 1 that had remained in two separate clumps for some two millennia. The first clump consisted of several parchment sheets. The second clump contained many crumpled fragments of varying size. A number of compositions from the first clump of sheets were published right away. In this chapter, the author argues that a reconsideration of the Cave 1 scroll 1QHa is needed. A stronger focus on the two different groups of Community Hymns material in 1QHa, in light of their relationship to the Teacher Hymns and the Cave 4 copies of the hodayot, can bring to light a better understanding of the textual development of the collection known as 1QHa.
