"Translated and with commentary by Michael Wise"--Cover.
|Bibliography, etc. Note:|| Includes bibliographical references (pages -646) and indexes.
|Summary, etc.:|| An updated and revised translation contains virtually every legible portion of the fragmented scrolls, including revelatory information on early Christianity and its roots - far deeper than previously realized - in ancient Judaism. Included as well are scroll fragments that promise to dramatically alter our view of biblical history, including never-before released texts and newly discovered writings by and about key biblical prophets and ancestors. The translators provide illuminating commentary throughout that places the scrolls in their true historical context. They also present a compelling, insightful introduction that gives the reader an overview of the often surprising contents of the scrolls and discusses what are perhaps the greatest mysteries of the scrolls - who authored them and why.
