A question concerning 4Q424, Sap. Work (c).

The "rules" presented in the fragments seem to presuppose, as their
addresses, those who live in the larger world (rather than in the secluded
community ar Qumran).

Is this evidence
a) that works written outside Qumran were stored there
b) that rules were written by the community for those who were members living
outside the central community
c) neither of the above
d) or is there not enough evidence either way (is it inconclusive)

Thanks for your insights,
