'He will heal the wounded and revive the dead and bring good news to the poor'
The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in the Judaean desert between 1947 and 1956 was one of the greatest archaeological finds of all time. These extraordinary manuscripts appear to have been hidden in the caves at Qumran by the Essenes, a Jewish sect in existence before and during the time of Jesus. Written in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek, the scrolls have transformed our understanding of the Hebrew Bible, early Judaism and the origins of Christianity.
This acclaimed translation by Geza Vermes, the world's leading Dead Sea Scrolls scholar, has established itself as the classic version of these texts. This revised seventh edition contains a new foreword, amendments and a fully updated bibliography.
'No translation of the scrolls is either more readable or more authoritative than that of Vermes' The Times Higher Education Supplement
'Excellent, up-to-date . . . will enable the general public to read the non-biblical scrolls and to judge for themselves their importance' The New York Times Book Review
Translated and edited with an introduction and notes by GEZA VERMES
