Because the images of the useless Sea Scrolls have been published in 1992, there was an explosion of curiosity in them. This quantity explores the problem of apocalypticism within the Scrolls; how the notions of the 'end', Messianic expectation and everlasting existence affected the lifeless Sea sect, encouraged Judaism and filtered into Christianity. Collins' quantity presents a helpful and available advent to the translation of the Scrolls, that is an informative addition to the sequence reading the most important issues of the Scroll texts.

Sample text

It is fully preserved in Ethiopic, but fragments of the Hebrew original have now been found in fourteen (possibly fifteen) manuscripts from Qumran: two (1Q17, 18) from Cave 1, two (2Q19, 20) from Cave 2, one (3Q5), from Cave 3, eight, possibly nine (4Q216–24) from Cave 4, and one (11Q12) from Cave 11: VanderKam 1992; VanderKam and Milik 1994). There are also three fragments that have been dubbed “pseudo-Jubilees” (4Q225, 226, and 227). All three mention Moses and have parallels to material dealt with in Jubilees, but do not correspond to the Ethiopic text of Jubilees.

The stars are the host of heaven, and to become like the stars is to become like the angels (cf. 1 Enoch 104:2–6). There are only a few clear references to resurrection in the Dead Sea scrolls, but there is plenty of evidence that the members of the sectarian community believed that they were destined for fellowship with the host of heaven. PSEUDO-DANIELIC WRITINGS In addition to the book of Daniel, other Danielic writings have been found at Qumran which may be described as apocalyptic, at least in a broad sense of the term.

Jubilees 23 is more explicit. Here we get a rapid overview of all generations from the time of Abraham. There is an extended account of the decline of humanity and the abuses of “an evil generation” (23:14) of the Hellenistic age. One of the charges against this generation is that it has forgotten “feasts and months and sabbaths and jubilees” – a possible reference to a change of calendar. But then (23:26) “the children will begin to study the laws” 25 DANIEL, ENOCH AND RELATED LITERATURE and the transformation will begin.
