The Companion to the Qumran Scrolls series offers comprehensive and
accessible introductions to the corpus of texts from Qumran. This
volume, devoted to the characteristic biblical commentaries,
discusses their contents and history, as well as their generic
relationship to both New Testament and rabbinic scriptural
exegesis. As with all the books in this series, this Guide is ideal
for undergraduate and graduate classes.This book introduces the
reader to one of the most important genres of sectarian writing
from Qumran: the Pesharim, or biblical commentaries. Timothy Lim
systematically discusses the textual characteristics of the quoted
bible verses, the literary genre and its relationship with rabbinic
midrash, the characteristics of sectarian exegesis, the nature of
the historical allusions, and the common features, whether real or
imagined, with the New Testament. Taking account of all relevant
and recently published texts and with an annotated bibliography,
this is an authoritative guide for the student or non-specialist
