not yet rated|write a review
This volume contains six or seven manuscripts of a previously unknown sapiential composition from the Second Temple period (4Q415 ff.), originally dubbed 'Sapiential Work A' and now known as '4QInstruction'. The numerous copies of this manuscript attest to its importance for the Community atQumran. The specialized terminology used in this work probably allows it to be classified as sectarian, that is, as having been composed by and reflecting the particular interests of the community at Qumran. Also included in the volume is a re-edition of 1QInstruction (1Q26) originally published byJ. T. Milik in DJD I. DJD XXXIV is the second and final volume in the series of sapiential texts from Cave 4.
