The Dead Sea Scrolls Concordance volume 3 for the first time indexes all of the biblical materials which have been found in a wide range of Judaean Desert sites. It provides a convenient index to the 276 biblical scrolls published in the Discoveries in the Judaean Desert series and elsewhere.
This keyword-in-context concordance, prepared by Martin G. Abegg, Jr., James E. Bowley and Edward M. Cook contains a new and consistent linguistic analysis of all the words found in the biblical Dead Sea Scrolls. The total
number of entries totals nearly 95,000 words. Every entry includes the keyword with its context. All keywords have an English translation, and the Hebrew and Aramaic sections are organized in alphabetical order rather than by verbal root, which makes the concordance easier to consult for the non-specialist.
This concordance to the biblical texts from the Judaean Desert is the third of a series of three. Volume one consists of concordances to the non-biblical texts from Qumran and the second volume will index all the non-biblical texts from sites other than Qumran.
