The relationships between Pauline literature and the Dead Sea scrolls have fascinated specialists ever since the latter were first discovered. Now that all the Qumran scrolls have been published, it is possible to see more clearly the amplitude and impact of this corpus on first century Judaism. This book offers some syntheses of the results obtained in the last decades, and also opens up new perspectives, by highlighting similarities and indicating possible relationships between these various writings within Mediterranean Judaism. In addition, the authors wish to show how certain traditions spread, evolve and are reconfigured in ancient Judaism as they meet new religious, cultural and social challenges.
Jean-Sébastien Rey, PhD (2006) Strasbourg and Leuven, is Professeur of Exegesis at the Lorraine University in Metz, France. He is director of the
Revue de Qumrân and his fields of research are the Dead Sea Scrolls and the sapiential literature of the Hellenistic Period.
