Item description for The Qumran Community (Cambridge Commentaries on Writings of the Jewish & Christian World 200 BC to AD 200, Vol. 2) by Michael a. Knibb...

Overview
Knibb provides fresh translations of substantial extracts from the Qumran writings together with an exegetical commentary to create a source book for the study of the Qumran community. Each piece has been carefully selected; instead of presenting a large number of isolated scraps, Knibb limits his choices to the several more impressive tracts. The great importance of this book lies in the exegetical commentary that confronts interpretative problems raised by each of the writings translated here.

Publishers Description
This book provides a new translation of substantial extracts from the Qumran writings, which comprise an important part of the Dead Sea scrolls. The writings reflect the beliefs and practices of a religious community which existed on the shores of the Dead Sea between the middle of the second century BC and AD 68. They shed considerable light on the Essenes, whose movement had an important focus at Qumran. In addition to selecting the most significant legislative, poetic and liturgical writings, Professor Knibb provides a commentary dealing with major interpretative problems raised by the extracts.
