The Hebrew Bible, its Text and Interpretation in the Dead Sea Scrolls
Some 250 biblical manuscripts were found among the Dead Sea Scrolls. These texts are of great significance for the history of the Bible text as we know it. We will explain how the varying text types found among the Qumran Scrolls and other sites in the Judean Desert allow us to trace the process that eventually yielded the consensus around the Masoretic Text. We will then treat texts presenting varying forms of biblical interpretation, explaining their place in the history of Jewish biblical studies.
