Chapter Summary

This book provides detailed information concerning the ways in which pentateuchal material is reworked in the 4QRP mss, Samaritan Pentateuch (SP), and Temple Scroll (TS). This conclusion chapter pull together some of the various topical threads that have run through this book, highlighting how the detailed textual analysis has advanced our understanding of the texts the author has examined, and returning to address the broader questions concerning exegesis, composition, and textual authority. On the one hand, with the exception of the very fragmentary 4Q366 and 4Q367, all of the texts examined here made use of virtually the same compositional techniques. On the other hand, in-depth analysis illustrates the extent to which each manuscript possesses a distinctive profile: no two manuscripts were alike in the proportions in which they used various compositional techniques or in the purposes to which they put these techniques.

Keywords:4QRP mss; compositional techniques; exegesis; manuscript; pentateuchal material; Samaritan Pentateuch (SP); Temple Scroll (TS); textual analysis
