Description
Among the manuscripts of the Dead Sea Scrolls are numerous fragments of liturgical texts that shed light on the ritual life of Jews at the turn of the 1st century, including prayers for annual festivals, a covenant renewal liturgy, a mystical liturgy for Sabbath sacrifices, and perhaps even a wedding ceremony. Beginning with a general introduction to the Qumran library and Jewish liturgical traditions, James Davila situates the liturgical texts found at the caves of Qumran in their historical context in Second Temple Judaism. He then offers a reliable translation of these texts, including notes on the original Hebrew, and explores their significance as background to the Jewish liturgy, Jewish mysticism, and Christian origins.
