Clear historical allusions in the Dead Sea Scrolls are very few, but this does not mean that the Scrolls cannot be placed within a historical context. E. aims to do this, aware that some scholars writing on the Scrolls do not take into account the archaeological and historical sources (especially Josephus) that are available to us. He therefore revisits many familiar topics, progressing in chronological order through the Hasmonaean dynasty: Antiochus IV (4Q248; 1QM; 4Q390), Jonathan the Hasmonaean (CD and Pesharim), John Hyrcanus (4Q379 on Joshua 6.26), the =Prayer for the Welfare of King Jonathan‘ (4Q448), Alexander Jannaeus (pesher Nahum; 11QT) and his successors (4Q333; 4Q468; 4Q471; and Pesharim), and the assassination of Pompey (4Q386). The assumption is that the Maccabaean crisis is still the natural context in which the Qumran community formed, and that the lack of post-Hasmonaean references is owing to a change in the community‘s notion of their enemy (now the Romans) after the death of the Teacher of Righteousness. While much of the historical allusions must remain tentative and cannot be proven, cautious reconstruction of the possibilities is welcome, and the historical context does throw fresh, even intriguing, light on particular scrolls. An earlier version of this work was published in Hebrew in 2004, but the English edition has an updated bibliography, incorporates new scholarship and adjusts the references to an English-speaking audience.

Michael Baigent, «Dead Sea Scrolls Deception»
Simon & Schuster | ISBN 0671797972 | (April 12, 1993) | HTML | 1.6 Mb | 288 pages

The oldest Biblical manuscripts in existence, the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in caves near Jerusalem in 1947, only to be kept a tightly held secret for nearly fifty more years, until the Huntington Library unleashed a storm of controversy in 1991 by releasing copies of the Scrolls. In this gripping investigation authors Baigent and Leigh set out to discover how a small coterie of orthodox biblical scholars gained control over the Scrolls, allowing access to no outsiders and issuing a strict "consensus" interpretation. The authors' questions begin in Israel, then lead them to the corridors of the Vatican and into the offices of the Inquisition. With the help of independent scholars, historical research, and careful analysis of available texts, the authors reveal what was at stake for these orthodox guardians: The Scrolls present startling insights into early Christianity – insights that challenge the Church's version of the "facts." More than just a dramatic exposé of the intrigues surrounding these priceless documents, The Dead Sea Scrolls Deception presents nothing less than a new, highly significant perspective on Christianity.
