The Social Location of the Visions of Amram (4Q543-547) (Studies in Biblical Literature)

The Social Location of the Visions of Amram (4Q543-547) (Studies in Biblical Literature) by Robert R. Duke
English | Aug. 6, 2010 | ISBN: 1433107899 | 174 Pages | PDF | 6.09 MB

The Visions of Amram (4Q543-547), five copies of an Aramaic text found among the Dead Sea Scrolls, stems from the pre-Hasmonean period
& provides evidence of a highly variegated society in early Judaism. In this book, Robert R. Duke offers a new reading of all the fragments & an in-depth discussion of their significance, illuminating a time period in Jewish history that needs more underst&ing & culminating in a suggested social location for its production. Duke concludes that 4Q543-547 was written by a disenfranchised group of priests who resided in Hebron. The importance of the patriarchal burials, chronology, endogamy, the figure of Moses, & angelology argue for a priestly group, whose members were also influenced by apocalyptic thinking. The suggestion of Hebron as the geographical location for this group is based on the theories of George Nickelsburg's & David Suter's work on 1 Enoch. Pre-Hasmonean Judaism was an intense time of dialogue & disagreement, & 4Q543-547 is one more item to consider in reconstructing these social realities.
