    Researchers get ready...



    Google and the IAA (Israel Antiquities Authority) announced Tuesday from Jerusalem that they will release the Dead Sea Scrolls online.



    Not long ago, the home for the scrolls, which are known to be the greatest archaeological treasures to ever be discovered, was North Carolina's Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh.

    “As far as the scholarly world is concerned, it is also going to open, you know, an incredible new possibilities for new interpretations, new readings, puzzling and whatever,” Shor said.

    Google said it was involved in the project as part of its philosophy to use the web to share knowledge across the globe and help preserve world heritage.

    I don't live that far away from that museum in Raliegh North Carolina and I had a relative that worked there, so I've been often. I've never been to Israel/Jerusalem.

    Introduction to the Texts..

    Working from many thousands of scroll fragments recovered in eleven caves near Qumran, researches have identified approximately 800 different original manuscripts. A few scrolls were fairly intact when found, others have been tentatively pieced together, still more exist only as small scraps of parchment. The preserved portions of a scroll often give only glimpses of what might have existed in the complete text. (See the Introduction to the collection for more background information.)

    DSS texts are identified by a number and letter combination, indicating the cave from which they were recovered: "1Q" indicates the text was found in Qumran cave 1; "4Q" means found in Qumran cave 4. This initial code is followed by either a second number (the catalog file number assigned to each fragment as it was archived) or by a few letters that abbreviate an alternative name given to a fragment by researchers, usually the supposed title of the text. Many important scrolls existed in more than one copy. Surviving pieces of these were sometimes found in different caves. For example, the section of text from the Book of Secrets (listed below), is reconstructed from fragment 27 found in Qumran Cave 1 (1Q27) and fragments 299-301 of a different copy found in Qumran Cave 4 (4Q299-301).

    A variety of literary forms can be identified among the surviving texts. Although there is no generally accepted system of categorizing the scrolls, roughly speaking the manuscripts fall into one or more of the following genres: Biblical texts, pentateuchal stories and commentaries; legal and ritual texts; prophets stories and commentaries; psalms and poetry; wisdom literature; prophecy and apocalyptics (visions); sectarian literature; and "miscellaneous things that don't fit anywhere else". Some texts can be assigned to several categories, depending on the subjective reading of the interpreter, which is why no system works very well. The great variety manifest in DSS texts has led some scholars to question whether a single sect at Qumran would have created or maintained such an apparently eclectic collection.

    (While the resources archived here at The Gnosis Archive are permanent and have been stable resources for over 15 years, many other internet sites do suddenly disappear. We apologize for any links below to defunct resources at other internet locations -- this is beyond our control; a Google search might find them in a new location.)

    The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible: The Oldest Known Bible Translated for the First Time into English

    Edited by Martin G. Abegg, Peter W. Flint and Eugene Charles Ulrich



    Description

    From The Publisher:

    From the dramatic find in the caves of Qumran, The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible presents the world's most precious and ancient version of the Bible. One thousand years older than any existing manuscripts, these scrolls allow us to read the Bible it was in the time of Jesus.

    Preserving parts of all but one biblical book, scrolls confirm that the text of the Old Testament as it has been handed down through the ages is largely correct. Yet, they also reveal numerous important differences. The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible:

    Offers new and striking textual readings that clarify millennia-old puzzles
    Restores lost psalms

    Reveals previously unknown details about the lives of biblical figures

    Provides new information on how the Hebrew Bible was created

    The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible presents all 220 of the Dead Sea biblical scrolls, arranged to be read in canonical order. The texts are translated into English by Eugene Ulrich, one of the three general editors of the Dead Sea Scrolls, Peter Flint and Martin Abegg Jr., the directors of the Dead Sea Scrolls Institute. Commentary by the editors provides insight into the rich cultural and religious traditions behind the scrolls and the Bible itself.
