Product Description

Among the manuscripts of the Dead Sea Scrolls are numerousfragments of liturgical texts: daily and festival prayers, songs and praises, and other fascinating documents. This inaugural volume in the Eerdmans Commentaries on the Dead Sea Scrolls series explores these important ancient texts, throwing new light on the ritual life of Jews at the turn of the common era. Beginning with a general introduction to the Qumran library and Jewish liturgical traditions, James Davila situates the liturgical texts found at Qumran in their historical context in translation of these Hewbrew texts and provides detailed line-by-line explanations of each document. Throughout his book Davila shows how the Qumran liturgical texts draw on and develop traditions from the Hebrew Bible, and he explores their significance as background to Jewish liturgy, Jewish mysticism, and Christian origins. This volume and the complete commentary project will become the standard reference work on the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Publisher's Description

Among the manuscripts of the Dead Sea Scrolls are numerous fragments of liturgical texts that shed light on the ritual life of Jews at the turn of the common era. This inaugural volume in the landmark Eerdmans Commentaries on the Dead Sea Scrolls series explores these important liturgical documents in depth.

Beginning with a general introduction to the Qumran library and Jewish liturgical traditions, James Davila situates the liturgical texts found at Qumran in their historical context in Second Temple Judaism. He then offers a reliable translation of these texts, including notes on the original Hebrew, and provides detailed line-by-line exegesis of each document. Throughout his commentary Davila shows how the Qumran liturgical texts draw on and develop traditions from the Hebrew Bible, and he explores their significance as background to the Jewish liturgy, Jewish mysticism, and Christian origins.
