Drawing on the latest research on the theology of the Qumran counity who produced the Dead Sea Scrolls, the author reveals the controlling themes in Qumran thinking, both in their individual meaning as well as their mutual relations, demonstrating the cohesion and distinctiveness in the theology as a whole.
Using the evidence of the sea scrolls, the site where they were found, and other historical sources, as well as drawing on a range of recent research, Alex Deasley seeks to address questions and reconstruct as far as possible the mind of the Qumran sectaries. He approaches their thought from the perspective of their concerns and categories in an attempt to highlight its distinctive and individual features. In as much as their main preoccupation was with how Israel would be saved, their theology was fundamentally covenantal in shape, but with heavy emphasis on the obligation to keep the covenant requirements. This was set within a marked apocalyptic framework arising from their belief that they stood at an eschatological crossroads in the history of Israel.
