Following Schiffman (and the ASOR blog): What’s New?

Some new things going on in Schiffman’s blogosphere.

DESTRUCTION OF QUMRAN
SUKENIK AND THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS, PART VI CONCLUSIONS
RETHINKING REWRITTEN BIBLE – THE TEMPLE SCROLL (This is from ASOR’s blog by Molly Zahn)

ASOR’s blog is hosting Qumran and Dead Sea Scroll month on their blog where a number of scholars have posted in different topics. Here is a nice post from a friend, Dan Machiela, who published the most recent critical edition of the Genesis Apocryphon (The Dead Sea Genesis Apocryphon : a new text and translation with introduction and special treatment of columns 13-17 (Brill, 2009).
