9780060600648: The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible: The Oldest Known Bible Translated for the First Time Into English

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 as it was in the time of Jesus. Preserving parts of all but one biblical book, the 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. All 220 of the Dead Sea biblical scrolls are presented, arranged for reading in canonical order. Commentary by the editors provides insight into the rich cultural and religious traditions behind the scrolls and the Bible itself.

Review:

'Here is a book we shall soon wonder how we did without. Bible scholars will find it essential; students will find it stimulating and exciting; anyone interested in the beginnings of Judaism and Christianity will find it fascinating. This is a book many have been awaiting since the Dead Sea Scrolls were first discovered half a century ago.' N. T. Wright 'This is an immensely valuable book. The first translation into English of the biblical books of the Dead Sea Scrolls is a major scholarly event. The material set out in this work will challenge further research for a long time. It is a book, however, that the general reader as well as the scholar can use with profit and pleasure. This is a book that no library can afford to be without. Understanding the world of the Gospels has been enormously enriched by the work of the editors.' Revd William Frend, Church Times

About the Author:

The texts are translated into English by Eugene Ulrich, one of the three general editors of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Peter Flint and Martin Abegg, the directors of the Dead Sea Scrolls Institute.
