Inside this Book – It should be noted that this collection does not include the Biblical texts discovered in the caves around Qumran but does include everything else: the community’s sectarian texts, apocryphal and pseudepigraphal texts, commentaries on the Biblical texts, compositions written according to the themes of the Biblical texts, etc. Vermes consolidates texts which feature many manuscripts and notes which manuscripts underlie which sections.

This is a highly recommended translation of the DSS especially for those who are interested in learning more about them but are not specialists in the field.
Inside this book –The Complete Dead Sea Scrolls in English PDF Book by Géza Vermes – It is an intriguing read, however, I feel it is a little upsetting that the translation cleaves to the Christian way of translating scriptures instead of using a more contemporary way to translate, More faithful to the original text and less Old/Middle Englishy It is high time we depart from the Christian tyrannical influence over religious texts, translations included. I was very happy however to see a very early little fragment of the Megillah Esther, which shows that it is not a late invention as many like to claim… and for sure the story has a solid basis and is much older than Christians and Anti-Semitic Zealots say it is. It also shows that the Anti-Semitic theories that Jewish knowledge derives from Greco-Romans and is “ younger” than Christianity is yet another baseless anti-Semitic claim, and even though these scrolls are mostly sectarian, being derived from other Jewish texts proves they are far older than the Heathens like to deride they are ( Whenever I discuss this they claim Jewish liturgy emerged as late as the 5th century C.E and is therefore a derivative of Aristotelian/ Greek Thought…
