The full publication of the scrolls from the Judaean Desert has given impetus to reflections on the history and development of the biblical text during the period of Second Temple Judaism. This study critically reviews the major contributions to the debate and finally makes a plea to extent Ulrich’s hermeneutical model to some Septuagint texts that are usually not included among his “variant literary editions.” Its major arguments in this regard are that these texts witness to the same dynamic process of the organic development of Scripture, and that relegating them to the interpretational tradition merely because they are not written in Hebrew reveals an unwarranted bias towards the Masoretic Text.
