Chapter Summary

This chapter firstly begins with a brief overview of the scriptural Isaiah scrolls. The second section discusses the use of Isaiah outside scriptural Isaiah in the Qumran Scrolls. The third part considers whether any of the works that quote or allude to Isaiah may have used a textual form of the book (the source text) that is closer to one of the versions or Hebrew sources that differ from the proto-Masoretic form of the book. The 101 cases of quotation, citation or allusion that is identified confirm the importance of the Isaiah Scriptures for the Yahad movement, which is not surprising in view of the large number of copies (twenty-one) of the scriptural book found in the caves at Qumran.

Keywords:Hebrew sources; Isaiah scrolls; proto-Masoretic text; Qumran scrolls; Yahad
