Item description for Qumran Cave 4: XXI: Parabiblical Texts, Part 4: Pseudo-Prophetic Texts (Discoveries in the Judaean Desert) by Devorah Dimant...
This is the fourth and last volume of parabiblical texts from Qumran Cave 4 and reveals once again the interest in biblical themes characteristic of Second Temple period Judaism, exhibited in many of the Qumran compositions. It is devoted to a small group of texts showing the rewriting, in different ways, of two biblical prophetic books: Jeremiah and Ezekiel. Because of their fragmentary nature it is not clear how many different compositions are reflected by the preserved fragments, but there are at least five manuscripts of one composition of Pseudo-Ezekiel, and seven manuscripts of two different compositions of the Apocryphon of Jeremiah.
