Product Description

The realization that the Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS) contained portions of the Hebrew Bible was an unprecedented event for archaeology and biblical studies. However, understanding just how much the DSS can inform and shape our understanding of the Bible beyond the "biblical manuscripts" remains largely unknown. In The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Bible DSS expert James VanderKam explores the significance of the entire Scroll collection for the Bible and how it illuminates our understanding while also examining the "biblical scrolls" and their significance.

Each chapter brings readers up-to-date with the latest pivotal developments, focusing on relevant information from the scrolls and expounding their significance for biblical studies. This rich compendium from a distinguished scholar is essential reading for all who work at understanding biblical texts and their contexts within the ancient world. This volume is accessible for all readers, and makes an excellant introductory guide for students or additional reading for Old Testament and Jewish history courses.
