Answer: Yours is not the first inquiry I have had on Barbara Thiering. This woman is not a serious scholar at all, despite her credentials.

She is a fringe person with an agenda which has caused her to reach absolutely insupportable, irrational conclusions. I would do more than take her with a grain of salt. I would assume that she is an angry, cynical, deceitful, untrustworthy witness. Her credentials tell me nothing about the quality of her work.

Her extreme, irrational bias makes every single conclusion dubious.

However, an ancient scribe did not copy just one scroll in his lifetime, so the recognition of the same handwriting in two fragments does not necessarily mean that they originally belonged to the same text.

This is not just a theoretical possibility, as the same scribal hand that copied the Rule of the Community, a text called Testimonia and the third copy of Samuel from Cave 4 also corrected the text of the Great Isaiah Scroll.

Sukenik and W. The scrolls are not internally dated and a method of dating by palaeography or the study of ancient hand writing was developed. The most widely followed typological scheme is that of Frank Cross. The reliability of this method depended upon the quality of the internal and external evidence used. After all, did scribes not have working lives of more than 25 years? More recently, the palaeographical dating has been supplemented by two radiocarbon 14 tests that were conducted in and Basically, the method dates any organic material, like skin and papyrus, by estimating the half-lives of the degradation of the radiocarbon isotope C found in it.

In the past, radiocarbon tests required large amounts of sample and it was unsuitable for the testing of the scrolls. Almost all of the scrolls have these three cataloguing references, the Rule of the Community, the Habakkuk Pesher, the Genesis Apocryphon and the Great Isaiah Scroll being notable exceptions that lack inventory numbers.

Of the non-sectarian texts, the greatest number belongs to books of the Old Testament or Hebrew Bible. There are no copies of the New Testament, unless one considers the tiny Greek fragments from Cave 7 to be vestiges of these books.

The scrolls are copies rather than autographs or original compositions. The Protestant canon totals 39 books, the different enumeration resulting from the counting of 1—2 Samuel, 1—2 Kings, 1—2 Chronicles, Ezra-Nehemiah, and each of the twelve minor prophet books as separate books. Copies of Old Testament or Hebrew Bible books account for about a 40 quarter of all the scrolls, copies according to one tally. They attest to every single book in the Protestant and Jewish canons, except for Esther.

Nehemiah is likewise unattested among the scrolls, but since Ezra-Nehemiah is counted as one book in Jewish tradition and there is a tiny fragment of Ezra, some consider that not only Ezra but also Nehemiah was preserved in the corpus. This collection of books was not written by one man, nor did it drop down from heaven as assumed by fundamentalists.

It is not a magical book, but a collection of authoritative texts of apparently divine origin that went through a human process of writing and editing. Each book or portion of a book has its own compositional and textual transmission history. Thus, for instance, the prophecy of the son of Amoz is divided by scholars into Isaiah 1—39 , Second Isaiah 40—55 and Trito-Isaiah 56—66 , originating from different times and written and edited by named and unnamed people and scribes.

The dating of the biblical books varies according to the considered opinion of scholars.

Those who are more conservative tend to date the books earlier, those of a liberal persuasion later. Whether conservative or liberal, Christian, Jewish or secular, almost all regard the time of Ezra in the 5th and 4th centuries BCE as vitally 41 New light on the Hebrew Bible The biblical texts from Qumran shed light on the transmission of the biblical texts at a critical juncture of history between BCE and CE. They tell us what the Bible was like before its standardization.

Did Jesus or Paul have the same Old Testament as we do? Have you ever tried to compare a quotation in the New Testament with its Old Testament source and found that they do not say quite the same thing?

The Dead Sea Scrolls important. According to biblical tradition, Ezra was a priest and scribe who was devoted to the study of the law Ezra 7. There are legendary elements in this depiction of Ezra, but broadly speaking it does indicate a renewal of the study of the law in the Persian period.

Revisionists would date the biblical texts later to the Hellenistic period, but the majority of scholars still consider the Persian period as the time when most of the scriptures, in one form or another, were composed and edited. In the Persian period the Hebrew language was now becoming increasingly unfamiliar and Jews, whose vernacular had become Aramaic, needed translations to help them understand the Mosaic Law written in the holy tongue.

One other important linguistic development is the further shift of the Jewish vernacular to Greek. Seventy-two elders were dispatched from Jerusalem and they accomplished their task in seventy two days. The Masoretic Text, as the mediaeval text was called, is the textus receptus or received text. English translations available today are based on the Masoretic Text and most modern ones are translated from the Leningrad Codex of the St. Petersburg Library in Russia dating to ca.

The Qumran biblical scrolls attest to the antiquity of the biblical books.

They are approximately one thousand years older than the 43 New light on the Hebrew Bible The Septuagint has its own textual history; it was not translated altogether at one time.

In the course of history, the Jewish Greek scriptures were adopted as the authoritative version of the Old Testament; they remain so today in the Orthodox Church.

They are much closer in time to the composition of the biblical books. In any case, by about CE all the biblical manuscripts found in various locations in the Judaean Desert, not only at Qumran, are Masoretic Texts.

Let us say that you are composing a report or essay on your portable computer; you work on it for a while and save it on to your hard disk in order to continue it at a later time.

Moreover, you can revert to original formulations and calculations with this electronic paper trail. The production of literary works involved the compositional and copying stages, with the Qumran scrolls attesting to the latter. As we know from our own experience of copying, such a process is susceptible to expansions, contractions and all manner of scribal errors. For instance, our eyes could skip from one line to another or from one phrase to another that is either identical or similar.

We could misspell a word or mis-form a letter. All these human errors contribute to the creation of different texttypes. Other changes are intentional revisions of a text for ideological and religious reasons or mechanical ones, such as the stereotype or consistent rendering of one word by another in the target language. Before the discovery of the scrolls, there were three previously known text-types of the Hebrew Bible: the Masoretic Text, the Samaritan Pentateuch and the Septuagint.

The second of these refers to the Torah of the Samaritan community who consider themselves descendants of the ancient Northern Kingdom of Israel.His prominence derived from his descent from the Davidic kingship, as well as the efforts of his great grandfather, said to have been Hillel the Great , and his grandfather, Heli , to establish schools of religious instruction for Jews of the Diaspora.

In the account of Nahash and Jabesh-gilead in Jewish Antiquities 6. The water system was enlarged by the addition of cisterns and decantation basins. There was also radical transformation of the living accommodations as there was no longer any need for places of collective assembly or any use of 26 workshops.

They were ancient manuscripts, and not Judaeo-Christian texts, as 37 On scrolls and fragments case, editors would gather together those Hebrew fragments of Deuteronomy that were written by the same scribal hand.
