This volume contains a collection of compositions from cave 4 at Qumran written during the Second Temple period, and linked to the Hebrew Bible through text, characters, themes, or genre. Some of these compositions present a reworking, rewriting or paraphrase of biblical books. In this collection, Tobit was previously known, forming a part of the Apocrypha. The additional documents published here include List of False Prophets and List of Netinim, Admonition onthe Flood, Discourse on the Exodus/Conquest Tradition, Apocryphon of Moses and Apocryphon of Jeremiah, Pseudo-Ezekiel, Exposition on the Patriarchs, A Text Mentioning Zedekiah, and Narratives. All these documents greatly enhance our understanding of biblical interpretation during the Second Templeperiod and of the phenomenon of pseudepigraphy (writing in the name of a well-known biblical or religious character) so prevalent in antiquity.
