INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM
Text, Thought, and Practice in Qumran and Early Christianity
January 1113, 2004


The Ninth Orion Symposium, co-sponsored with the Hebrew University's Center for the Study of Christianity focused on patterns of relations between the Qumran community, the Jesus movement, and the early Church. This January, sixteen scholars of Dead Sea Scrolls and/or early Christianity presented papers looking at correspondences and divergences between Qumranic and early Christian texts, in matters of biblical interpretation, religious belief, and patterns of behavior. The ensuing discussions led to a re-evaluation of some long-standings assumptions about how we should understand the possibility of connections between the Qumran community and the earliest Christians.
