In this episode, I discuss:
- The different biblical texts discovered at Qumran
- The nature of “Scripture” during the Second Temple period
- The process of canonization and why “canon” can mean something different for Jews and for Christians
- The importance of interpretation for a “Scripturized” Bible
- And as a special bonus, learn about the Masoretes! (Who were they, and what did they do?)
As always, I look forward to your questions and comments!
