Chapter Summary

One of the most important fields of study in which the Dead Sea Scrolls and early rabbinic literature have shed light on one another is that of scriptural interpretation, or midrash, as the term is variously employed in both textual corpora. In this chapter, the author ask a similar set of questions deriving from an initial comparison between early rabbinic midrash aggadah and forms of narrative interpretation in the Dead Sea Scrolls, without pretending to be the least bit exhaustive of either. It considers a particular and prominent aspect of rabbinic narrative midrash and ask why it is relatively absent among the Dead Sea Scrolls. The chapter then focuses on earliest rabbinic midrashic collections.
