Dead Sea Scrolls – Complete Hosea Text

Sep 28th, 2011

A little treat before the Feast of Trumpets (Also known as Taruw’ah): Complete transcriptions of all the manuscripts found among the Dead Sea Scrolls containing text from the book of Hosea.

This also means that all the manuscripts containing text from the Twelve Minor Prophets have been completely transcribed and uploaded onto the website, and so I’ve compiled them all into their respective manuscripts and names 🙂

Furthermore, due to the large collection of free PDF’s for download on the website, I’ve also created a new page that just contains links to all the available downloads on TWTY. Check it out here. It’s also available via the link on the sidebar to the right.

This will the last update with Dead Sea Scroll transcriptions for a while. Got a few other things on my to-do list that need doing 🙂

Dead Sea Scrolls – Complete Amos & Malachi Texts

Sep 20th, 2011

Dead Sea Scrolls update time again. The short book of Malachi (3 Chapters) is contained in two Dead Sea Scrolls Manuscripts – 4Q76a (4QXIIa) and 4Q78c (4QXIIc), although neither of these two manuscripts contain any text from Chapter 1 (4Q78c (4QXIIc) actually only has chapter 3 verses 6 & 7 extant, and then in fragmentary form!).

Amos however, containing 9 chapters, is a bit more complete among the Dead Sea Scrolls being contained in four manuscripts: 4Q78c (4QXIIc), 4Q82g (4QXIIg), 5Q4Amos (5QAmos) and Wadi Murabba’at (MurXII). These four manuscripts contain text from all of the 9 chapters, although not every word is extant. Nevertheless, Amos does come down to us from these 2000+ year old scrolls in a near-complete form 🙂

4Q78c/4QXIIc Amos | 4Q82g/4QXIIg Amos | 5Q4Amos/5QAmos Amos | Wadi Murabba’at/MurXII Amos

Dead Sea Scrolls – Complete Haggai Text

Sep 1st, 2011

The short book of Haggai appears in three of the Dead Sea Scrolls Manuscripts – Wadi Murabba’at Minor Prophets (MurXII); 4Q77b (4QXIIb); and 4Q80e (4QXIIe). So as usual, I have transcribed and uploaded all three of them onto the website 🙂

(For people that haven’t realised, there are certain “key codes” for the Dead Sea Scroll’s Manuscripts. 4Q stands for “Fourth Qumran Cave” (so therefore “2Q” would stand for “Second Qumran Cave” and so on and so forth), and manuscripts with XII in their title stand for “Twelve” and so refer to “The Twelve Minor Prophets”).
