In this study, we will be concerned with one small aspect of the scroll's physical character, namely the question of its last column and the conclusion of the Temple Scroll. We shall endeavor to challenge Yadin's conclusion that the end of the Temple Scroll is "preserved" in the so-called zero lines at the top of the last column. By comparing 11QTa and 4Q524, which preserves additional text from the end of the composition, and analyzing scribal techniques and literary contents, it seems probable that the Temple Scroll is an unfinished copy, from a more complete Vorlage, or an unfinished composition.
