The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Hasmonean State is the first book dedicated solely to the question of how we can learn political history from the Qumran scrolls. Hanan Eshel unpacks and summarizes the historical information contained in the scrolls. He then goes on to demonstrate that Josephus's description of the political history of the Hasmonean period is reliable.This version of Eshel's 2004 Hebrew publication has been expertly translated for an English-speaking audience. It has also been updated to reflect more recent scholarship and includes a totally new bibliography of English resources.Table of Contents PrefaceDiacritical Marks, Sigla, and AbbreviationsIntroductionONE: The Roots of the Hasmonean Revolt: The Reign of Antiochus IVTWO: Questions of Identity: The "Teacher of Righteousness," the "Man of Lies," and Jonathan the HasmoneanTHREE: The Succession of High Priests: John Hyrcanus and his Sons in the Pesher to Joshua 6:26FOUR: Alexander Jannaeus and His War against Ptolemy LathyrusFIVE: A Prayer for the Welfare of King JonathanSIX: The Pharisees' Conflict with Alexander Jannaeus and Demetrius?
