Chapter Summary

Author's examination of the methods and goals of textual reworking in the 4QRP mss begins with 4Q158.This manuscript constitutes an ideal starting point because it combines a relatively limited amount of text with a relatively wide array of compositional techniques. 4Q158 can be examined in detail, and thus can serve as a 'case study' to which the other 4QRP mss can be compared. Of 4Q158's fifteen fragments, thirteen contain material from the book of Exodus and one material from Genesis. It is also possible that 4Q158 reflected Exodus alone: this chapter discusses that in one of the appearances of text from Genesis this material seems to have been integrated into the context of the book of Exodus. 4Q158 represents a further rewriting of an already rewritten text of Exodus: it uses as its Vorlage a form of the text apparently very similar to that found in the Samaritan Pentateuch.
