Book Description:
This study is the first full analysis of the Qumran wisdom texts. Translations and a full explanation of the background and context of wisdom literature introduce the reader to an important and hitherto little-discussed part of the Dead Sea Scrolls. After surveying biblical and extra-biblical wisdom books, the author considers the best and most fully preserved wisdom texts from Qumran. The centerpiece of the book is a discussion of the large wisdom instruction known as Sapiential Work A. Also, the author reflects on the relevance of those texts for the study of early Judaism and Christianity. An appendix treats the Ben Sira scroll from Masada.
