Ever since they were discovered in 1947, the Dead Sea Scrolls have proved to be one of the most important finds ever, informing man-kind of their origins and, since they contain a 2000-year-old incarnation of the Bible, charting religious and sociological history. Learn how archaeologists found them and how the entire world reacted to their discovery, and watch a reenactment that purports to trace just how the documents ended up where they did. From the beginning, the Dead Sea Scrolls have captured the imagination and interest of scholars and the public. The scrolls tell us of a time of ferment and change, of apocalyptic visions, and they shed light on the earliest days of Judaism and Christianity. Do the scrolls tell us an eyewitness account of Jesus? Was he a part of the monastic community living at Qumran in the desert? After fifty years of scrolls research, a science films bring the legend to life, from the diverse perspectives of biblical scholarship, science and technology. The film bring together the most important scrolls scholars, archaeologists, and cutting edge technologies, to create a moving portrait of the Qumran community who left the scrolls. In 2002, after more than 50 years of study, the scrolls and the research were finally to be published.

The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Hasmonean State

The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Hasmonean State

Hanan Eshel The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Hasmonean State (Studies in the Dead Sea Scrolls and Related Literature))

Clear historical allusions in the Dead Sea Scrolls are very few, but this does not mean that the Scrolls cannot be placed within a historical context. E. aims to do this, aware that some scholars writing on the Scrolls do not take into account the archaeological and historical sources (especially Josephus) that are available to us. He therefore revisits many familiar topics, progressing in chronological order through the Hasmonaean dynasty: Antiochus IV (4Q248; 1QM; 4Q390), Jonathan the Hasmonaean (CD and Pesharim), John Hyrcanus (4Q379 on Joshua 6.26), the =Prayer for the Welfare of King Jonathan‘ (4Q448), Alexander Jannaeus (pesher Nahum; 11QT) and his successors (4Q333; 4Q468; 4Q471; and Pesharim), and the assassination of Pompey (4Q386). The assumption is that the Maccabaean crisis is still the natural context in which the Qumran community formed, and that the lack of post-Hasmonaean references is owing to a change in the community‘s notion of their enemy (now the Romans) after the death of the Teacher of Righteousness. While much of the historical allusions must remain tentative and cannot be proven, cautious reconstruction of the possibilities is welcome, and the historical context does throw fresh, even intriguing, light on particular scrolls. An earlier version of this work was published in Hebrew in 2004, but the English edition has an updated bibliography, incorporates new scholarship and adjusts the references to an English-speaking audience.
