Re: Arabic at Qumran?

Arabic as we know it today did not exist, orthographicaly, at the time 
the DSS were composed. Although S. Arabic (as opposed to North, or what 
came to be Qur'anic Arabic) did have a script, it was not part of the DSS 
tradition (sic.). The development of N. Arabic script occured in the 
seventh century.
