Re: Nehemiah among the Scrolls

>From Teresa Brown:

The portion of Ezra/Nehemiah discovered at Qumran being
only from the poriton we identify as Ezra seems a very weak argument to
support the notion of separate works, IMHO.

The noton of separate doesn't need an argument. That is how we have them.
It is the notion of a single work that needs an argument. See VanderKam, by
th way, in the Blenkinsopp FS (JSOTS 149, Sheffield 1992, ed Ulrich et al),
where Ulrich also publishes 4QEzra.
