Product Overview

Since the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947, there has been a debate about the relationship of the covenanters and their library to Jerusalem's Temple, as well as speculation about the viability of their 364-day calendar (seen also in Jubilees and First Enoch). Gardner's thesis is that the calendar was viably constructed in the post exilic period by the pre-Hasmonean Jerusalem priesthood using Babylonian expertise, and that synchronistic schemes (one very like Qumran'sMishmarot, in combining lunar, solar and 364-day data) are deliberately concealed in the Massoretic text of the Primeval History, in the puzzling ages of the patriarchal genealogies in Genesis 5 and 11.
