Product Description

This is the first English translation of the earliest Biblical documents ever found, featuring clear, concise commentary by three of the world's leading Dead Sea Scroll scholars. Up until the discovery of the Scrolls in the cave of Qumran, the oldest known Bible dated from the 11th century C.E.; the Dead Sea Scrolls Bible precedes that by more than 1,000 years.

The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible presents all 220 of the Dead Sea biblical scrolls, arranged to be read in canonical order. Commentary by the editors provides insight into the rich cultural and religious traditions behind the scrolls and the Bible itself. The Qumran manuscripts preserve parts of every book in the Hebrew Bible (except the Book of Esther). However, in a number of cases the wording differs from the canonical texts. There are also passages in the older texts that were assumed to be lost forever.

Martin Abegg, Jr. and Peter Flint are co-directors of the Dead Sea Scrolls Institute at Trinity Western University in British Columbia. Abegg is co-translator of the highly acclaimed Dead Sea Scrolls: a New Translation.

Eugene Ulrich, a professor at Notre Dame University, is one of the chief editors of the Qumran Biblical texts. He recently received the Congressional Medal of Honor for his work on the Scrolls.

"Here is a book we will 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, author of The Meaning of Jesus

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 and preserving parts of all but one biblical book, these 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, such as:
-- New and striking textual readings that clarify millennia-old puzzles.
-- Lost psalms.
-- Previously unknown details about the lives of biblical figures.
-- New information on how the Hebrew Bible was created.

With commentary by the editors, this book provides invaluable insight into the rich cultural and religious traditions behind the scrolls and the Bible itself.
