Chapter Summary

The aim of the chapter is to reflect on the progress made in Qumran studies during the past decade and to look toward future study. One of the principal areas of progress has been in methodological clarity. Methodological reflection both on the setting of the Scriptures within general Judaism during the first centuries B.C.E. and C.E., and on modern scholars attempts at evaluating the Qumran scriptural evidence has already produced major advances and holds great promise for further advances. The first section of the chapter considers theoretical issues; the second section treats specific issues with regard to Scripture and particular manuscript evidence; and the third explores issues regarding the collection of Scriptures, later to emerge as the canon.

Keywords: Judaism; Qumran scriptural evidence; Scriptures
