Book Description:
This volume examines Dead Sea Scroll texts which pertain to the Qumran community's understanding of: a transcendent, angelmorphic or divine humanity; and the role of cultic space and time, and the experience of worship, in the formation of such a humanity. The book contains 12 chapters. The first three are devoted to material which either antedates or provides important cognate material to the perculiarly sectarian material studied in the the remaining chapters (especially the Book of Noah and Sirach). Chapters four to six examine texts devoted to a divine humanity, the divine or angelec Moses and the heavenly human priesthood. The seventh chapter discusses the mystical and theophanic significance of the high priest's breastpiece at Qumran. Chapters eight to eleven are revisionist reading of the 'Songs of the Sabbath Sacrifice' as a liturgy for a divine humanity, and chapter 13 proposes a new interpretation of 1QM 10 17 in the same vein. Apart from Dead Sea Scroll scholars, this book should also be useful for anyone working on biblical anthropology, messianism and Christology, and temple or cultic theology.
