Re: orion Knowlege of DSS outside Qumran in 1st cent CE??

   My use of "Palestine" may techincally be anachronistic, but as I
understand it, "Judah" did not encompass Galilee and other areas
bordering on "Judah".  Therefore, if I wish to speak of the general area
of which Judah is a part but not the whole, what 1st century CE term is
preferrable?  I'll happily use that.  This may be significant because it
seems as though Yirmiyahu Ben-David is perhaps suggesting that outside
of Yehudah there would be less knowledge of Qumran teachings, etc.
That's also I guess part of my original query.  I'm trying to figure out
just whee one would hae to live and what one would have to do for a
profession in order to have been acquainted enough with QUmran texts and
teachings to relfect them in his/her own writings.  Thanks.
