Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the early or pre-history of the people associated with the scrolls. The best known work pointing to what appears to be a wider, more inclusive group is the Damascus Document which speaks of camps and provides for family life in its laws and stipulations. There is much in common between the Damascus Document (D) and Qumran codes such as the Serekh (S), though S seems to legislate for a different kind of community, one in which a more separated and non-familial life was apparently practiced. D in general, including CD 1, has played an important part in the Groningen Hypothesis that has received much attention in recent years.

Keywords: CD 1:511; Damascus Document (D); Ezekiel; Groningen Hypothesis; Qumran Community; Serekh (S)
