This book offers a comprehensive summary of the use of the Psalms at Qumran and the New Testament. Theses often focus on one particular Psalm (such as Psalm 118 in John) or New Testament passage (for example, Old Testament in Hebrews 1:5-12). This collection offers for the first time a set of studies which will offer an overview of the role and function of the Psalms in the first century. Each chapter considers matters of textual form, points of particular interest, and hermeneutics. Together, this collection forms an important research tool for Septuagintal and manuscript studies, first-century hermeneutics and the development of Christian apologetics and theology. The contributors are all specialists in their particular section of the New Testament/Qumran. In a number of cases, the particular chapter will be the first of its kind (such as Steve Moyise's discussion of Psalms in Revelation).
