This volume contains a collection of compositions from cave 4 at Qumran written during the Second Temple period, and linked to the Hebrew Bible through text, characters, themes, or genre. Some of these compositions present a reworking, rewriting or paraphrase of biblical books. In thiscollection, Tobit was previously known, forming a part of the Apocrypha. The additional documents published here include List of False Prophets and List of Netinim, Admonition on the Flood, Discourse on the Exodus/Conquest Tradition, Apocryphon of Moses and Apocryphon of Jeremiah, Pseudo-Ezekiel,Exposition on the Patriarchs, A Text Mentioning Zedekiah, and Narratives. All these documents greatly enhance our understanding of biblical interpretation during the Second Temple period and of the phenomenon of pseudepigraphy (writing in the name of a well-known biblical or religious character) soprevalent in antiquity.
