The War Scroll and Other Apocalyptic Texts
Lecture no. 10 from the course: The Dead Sea Scrolls
Taught by Professor Gary A. Rendsburg | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
Two key scrolls—one of which details a cataclysmic battle between the "Sons of Light" (the Qumran sect's self-designation) and the "Sons of Darkness" (all other Jews, apparently)—offer you a window into apocalyptic belief among the Dead Sea sectarians.
