Re: Port or Dock.
Perhaps the confusion here is over terms. Clearly there was not a major
port at Qumran. There would not have been enough trade to warrant one.
However, there was surely a dock. They must have had boats.
So, if docks, then boats, if boats, then a dock, if no boats, no
dock, if no dock, no boat - logics?
Is there, on the other hand, not a reference in Josephus to Romans
sailing on the Dead Sea - the story about the Jews who were thrown
into the sea so that the Romans could see that it was really as
salted as maintained?
