Abstract

This chapter surveys the Qumran corpus, and lays out the liturgical texts that are most relevant to the question. Then it examines two of the many examples of close correspondence between the pre-70 CE liturgies and post-70 CE Jewish liturgy. The implications for the question at hand are drawn out in the conclusion. The Qumran corpus preserves more than 300 discrete hymns, prayers, and psalms - including about one hundred biblical psalms. The chapter illustrates the liturgical continuity by two examples found in the important liturgical collections of non-Qumranic origin. The first case is the systematic use of blessing formulae to open and close liturgical prayers. The second case is the petition "to implant Your Torah in our heart" in the Thursday prayer of the Words of the Luminaries.
