The Companion to the Qumran Scrolls series offers comprehensive and accessible introductions to the corpus of texts from Qumran. This volume, devoted to the characteristic biblical commentaries, discusses their contents and history, as well as their generic relationship to both New Testament and rabbinic scriptural exegesis. As with all the books in this series, this Guide is ideal for undergraduate and graduate classes.This book introduces the reader to one of the most important genres of sectarian writing from Qumran: the Pesharim, or biblical commentaries. Timothy Lim systematically discusses the textual characteristics of the quoted bible verses, the literary genre and its relationship with rabbinic midrash, the characteristics of sectarian exegesis, the nature of the historical allusions, and the common features, whether real or imagined, with the New Testament. Taking account of all relevant and recently published texts and with an annotated bibliography, this is an authoritative guide for the student or non-specialist scholar.
