The Dead Sea Scrolls: A New Translation

The Dead Sea Scrolls The Dead Sea Scrolls HarperOne

Michael Wise, Martin Abegg, Jr., and Edward Cook

HarperCollins, 2005

A new translation since 1996, this is the most complete edition of the legendary Dead Sea Scrolls scriptures which written in the first century BCE and were found in caves at Qumran in 1946-47.

The translators--scriptural scholars--propose a new theory which differs from the standard view. They offer explanations of the reconstruction and translation process and provide a text which is more idiomatic. This scripture is vital to understanding early Judaism and the history of the era, and the roots of Christianity.
