Qumran Hebrew as an Anti-Language

Taught by Professor Gary A. Rendsburg | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Turn to the dialect used in the Dead Sea Scrolls known to scholars as "Qumran Hebrew"—an example of the sociolinguistic phenomenon of "anti-language"—and investigate how it could be used by the sect to set itself apart.

Important material and in fact it could be divided into 2 lectures.

I suspect that someone here doesn't understand the point of using analogies... ironically, this person missed the point of this lecture.

He makes so many analogies and so much time on these analogies- America in the 18th century, medieval Christianity and 4th century BCE Greece, that he spends far too little time on the actual Dead Sea Scrolls. Watch if you want to learn about Quakers or New Testament Greek. Don't watch if you are interested in the Dead Sea Scrolls
