Chapter Summary

While the legal and narrative teachings of the Qumran sectarians and the early rabbinic sages share many aspects and elements, this chapter demonstrates some ways in which they can be mutually enlightening through the application of a common manner of hermeneutical, rhetorical, and historical reading, highlighting thereby both their similarities and differences, their continuities and discontinuities, their historical afterlives have been radically different. For the most part, the writings of the Qumran sectarians, like their social matrix, disappeared from historical view shortly before the year 70 C.E., when the Jerusalem temple was destroyed as a consequence of the first failed revolt against Roman imperial rule.

Keywords: Jerusalem; Qumran; rabbinic sages; Roman imperial rule
