Publisher's Synopsis

From the dramatic find in the caves of Qumran, The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible presents the world's most precious and ancient version of the Bible. One thousand years older than any existing manuscripts, these scrolls allow us to read the Bible as it was in the time of Jesus.

Preserving parts of all but one biblical book, the scrolls confirm that the text of the Old Testament as it has been handed down through the ages is largely correct. Yet, they also reveal numerous important differences.


"The biblical scrolls found in the Judean Desert are often mentioned and their great age frequently noted, but they are not included in English translations of the scrolls. Anyone wishing to know exactly what is in these ancient scrolls now has in this volume a comprehensive translation of the evidence together with introductions and notes. Abegg, Flint, and Ulrich are to be commended for making this valuable contribution to the study and dissemination of the scrolls."   ~James C. VanderKam, University of Notre Dame

"In the Dead Sea Scrolls Bible three experts illustrate why the Bible has been transmitted faithfully and why sometimes an original reading may have been discovered; also they indicate readings, such as Psalm 22:16, that reveal a Hebrew text perhaps used by an author of a document in the New Testament. The result is an attractive, authoritative - and highly recommended - book."    ~Professor J.H. Charlesworth, George L. Collord Professor of New Testament Language and Literature, and Editor of the Princeton Dead Sea Scrolls Project, Princeton Theological Seminary
