  • Ethics in the Qumran Communityby Marcus K.M. Tso

    Mohr Siebeck 2010; US$ 56.30

    Marcus Tso uses an interdisciplinary methodology to reexamine a long-neglected subject.

He begins by comparing the ethical language of the Scrolls with other related literatures, then places the... more...

  • Performanzkritik der Paulusbriefeby Bernhard Oestreich

    Mohr Siebeck 2012; US$ 84.93

    Die biblischen Texte stammen aus einer Kultur, in der die Schrift in der Regel dem gesprochenen Wort diente.

  • Scripture and Interpretationby Ariel Feldman; Liora Goldman; Devorah Dimant

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    Some of the Dead Sea Scrolls are texts which rewrite the Hebrew Bible. They differ from the literary products of the Qumran ascetic community by missing the sectarian particular style and terminology. These rewritten Bible texts may therefore shed light on the origins and sources of this community. Most of the scholarly attention has... more...

  • The Messiah before Jesusby Israel Knohl

    University of California Press 2000; US$ 15.95

    In a work that challenges notions that have dominated New Testament scholarship for more than a hundred years, Israel Knohl gives startling evidence for a messianic precursor to Jesus who is described as the "Suffering Servant" in recently published fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Messiah before Jesus clarifies many formerly incomprehensible... more...
