Chapter Summary

For the first forty years or so of Qumran scholarship, the study of biblical interpretation did not occupy a prominent position, either as regards the Dead Sea Scrolls narrowly or Second Temple literature more broadly. The study of comparative exegesis is one facet of biblical interpretation at Qumran which is growing, but has certainly yet to meet its full potential. Turning to the looking ahead part of this chapter, the author divide it into looking inward and looking outward, where the latter section will respond to some of the charges given in the themes for this conference. First, what are the desiderata in the investigation of biblical interpretation at Qumran to which we should give some of our attention in the near future? One area of scholarship which has been underrepresented in the past is the production of commentaries on Qumran works of interpretation.
