By the term "concept of time" the author refers to the entire complex of issues relating to time, as follows from our involvement in the writings of the corpus.The work discusses issues of terminology, substance and ideology that arise from the totality of texts dealing with the subject of time.The conjoining of the eight groups of chapters of the book provides a comprehensive picture of the approach to time in ancient Hebrew literature, beginning with the Bible and concluding with the first century C.E., the latest possible time frame for the Scrolls.The book's 28 chapters are divided into two major parts1) Time in the Bible; and 2) Time in the Dead Sea Scrolls, divided into eight sections.I.
