Holy Scripture in the Qumran Commentaries and Pauline Letters

Pauline exegesis may be compared to the pesherite interpretation of the Qumran scrolls. While formal distinctions between the two should not be ignored, and the pesher as a genre is sui generis, they nevertheless manifest commonalities that cannot be denied. The existence of ‘Midrash pesher’, however, is based upon a dubious reading of 4Q174 and this alleged hybrid genre should, this chapter argues, be left out of a discussion of pesherite or Pauline exegeses.
