Studies in the Dead Sea Scrolls and Related Literature Series
Joseph A. Fitzmyer, S.J.
From The Publisher:
Gathers recent research that provides background to the Bible and Christianity.
This volume by Joseph Fitzmyer, a pioneer in the field of Dead Sea Scrolls research, collects twelve of his recent studies on the Scrolls, including a new essay on Qumran messianism. Well known for his landmark work in Aramaic studies and on the Semitic background of the New Testament, Fitzmyer explores how the Scrolls have shed light on the interpretation of biblical themes and on the rise of early Christianity. All of the articles in this volume have been updated to take into account current discussions.
The collection as a whole is an eloquent witness to Fitzmyer’s careful scholarship on the Dead Sea scrolls.
Scholars, teachers, and students will greatly benefit from accessing this volume from one of the foremost contemporary scholars of the early Jewish and New Testament deposit.
