A Catalog of Biblical Passages in the Dead Sea Scrolls
David L. Washburn
Publication Date
January 2003


067002P-WashburnMaterial from the Dead Sea Scrolls appears in many publications. While much of the corpus has now appeared in the Discoveries in the Judaean Desert series, there are still fragments buried in obscure journals and books that can be virtually impossible to find. This book identifies all the passages in the Qumran documents that contain biblical text, both in the biblical and non-biblical scrolls. It provides specific bibliographic information, in canonical order, for locating each passage in the published scrolls and compares each one to the ancient Hebrew and Greek versions of the Hebrew Bible, noting both similarities and differences. It is designed to help those who want to work with manuscripts and versions to discover the original text of the Hebrew Bible. This work will appeal to students of Qumran, and both scholars and nonspecialists interested in textual criticism of the Hebrew Bible.

David L. Washburn is an independent scholar and internet specialist in Chino Valley, Arizona.

“This catalogue is a much needed and extremely useful starting-point for anyone wishing to investigate the representation of biblical passages in the Dead Sea Scrolls.”
— Alice Wood, Expository Times
