Sample text

80 DJD X, 115. INTRODUCTION 21 Wicked Priest (cf. 84 Alternatively, it has been suggested by H. Eshel and Schwartz that the addressee of the document was in fact a Pharisee. According to Schwartz the halakhic section is addressed to a group, and the epilogue is addressed to an individual, apparently a ruler, in some way closely connected with the previously mentioned group. 3. 87 However, since even in the halakhic section, the existence of a clearly definable ‘they’-group is not certain, the identification is somewhat problematic.

According to Grossman, 4QMMT can be read and understood both as an extracommunal epistle, as an intracommunal treatise, and as a document-after-the-fact. Grossman has shown how one can postulate one single author, possibly even the Teacher of Righteousness, an individual addressee, and a specific conflict as the historical background of 4QMMT if it is defined as an extracommunal epistle. In this case, the late copies signify the importance of this letter as a foundational document of the group.
