Overview

The recovery of 800 documents in the 11 caves on the northwest shores of the Dead Sea is one of the most sensational archeological discoveries to date. These three volumes, the very best of critical scholarship, demonstrate in detail how the scrolls have revolutionized our knowledge of the text of the Bible, the character of Second Temple Judaism, and the Jewish beginnings of Christianity. In addition to unearthing historical and theological background to the Bible, the Dead Sea Scrolls are the most important discovery for studying the textual history of the Old Testament.

With the Logos edition of this invaluable collection, researching the archaeological discoveries of the Dead Sea is easier and more efficient than ever. Scripture and ancient-text citations link to other resources in your library for one-click navigation. Fully searchable and integrated into the Logos software, these volumes yield a wealth of information on the Dead Sea Scrolls and their importance for biblical studies.

Key Features

  • The best scholarly research on the Dead Sea Scrolls
  • Primary-source documentation of first-century Judaism
  • Invaluable resources for biblical textual criticism and Bible background

Praise for the Print Edition

The three-volume edition Bible and the Dead Sea Scrolls will become a milestone for Old and New Testament research. The authors are leading scholars in this field and no other publication has collected so many interesting contributions about the largest finding of biblical and Jewish texts in the last century.

Martin Hengel, former professor emeritus of New Testament and early Judaism, University of Tubingen

These three volumes containing fresh and updated research on the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Bible, the Qumran community, and early Christianity, written by renown scholars from the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Israel, and edited by one of the world’s leading scholars, promise to be a major and definitive contribution to scholarship.

—Adolfo Roitman, curator of the Dead Sea Scrolls, The Israel Museum, Jerusalem

James H. Charlesworth has assembled a stellar gathering of Dead Sea Scrolls scholars in these rich volumes. They will make a lasting and profoundly significant contribution to the understanding of the greatest archeological find of modern times and the light it throws on the Bible.
