Product Description

A groundbreaking study on the Dead Sea Scrolls in light of the context of the history of Judaism and how the scrolls inform our understanding of the religious situation of the Jewish people during this time period.

Based on recent scholarship and over twenty years of personal research, author Lawrence H. Schiffman presents an invigorating fresh perspective on the Dead Sea Scrolls, one of the important archeological discoveries of the twentieth century. Whereas most scholarship has centered on how the scrolls inform our understanding of early Christianity, Reclaiming the Dead Sea Scrolls takes a different approach and instead focuses on the profound insight they offer concerning Judaism during the time of the Second Temple and early Christianity.

Schiffman begins with a discussion of the history of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the archeology of Qumran, and the historical background of the Second Temple period in order to lay a proper foundation. After evaluating the documents themselves, the author addresses how they contribute to a more complete understanding of other issues such as the history of Jewish biblical interpretation, Jewish law and messianism, and the nature of the Jewish people and Jerusalem.
