A newly updated edition of the landmark translation by one of our greatest religious scholarsSince its publication in 1962, esteemed biblical expert Géza Vermes's translation of the Dead Sea Scrolls has established itself as the authoritative standard. Some sixty years after the Scrolls' discovery, this revised and expanded volume crowns a lifetime of research by Vermes.For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. The original manuscripts, discovered in the Judean Desert between 1947 and 1956, completely transformed our understanding of the Hebrew Bible, early Judaism, and the origin of Christianity. Now in its seventh edition, The Complete Dead Sea Scrolls in English has been updated with a number of previously unpublished texts, as well as extensive new introductory material and notes. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.. With more than 1,500 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines

He is the author of several books, including The Authentic Gospel of Jesus. Geza Vermes’s pioneering work on the Dead Sea Scrolls and the historical Jesus led to his appointment as the first professor of Jewish studies at Oxford University, where he is now professor emeritus.

NOT the complete DSS S. Schrecker How disappointing for the venerable Penguin to mislead us with this title. The DSS Bible books are not here in this collection. Only the non-biblical DSS are here. Fineas long as you tell us, which you didn't. One might cynically believe the title was chosen for marketing strength, not honesty concerning the contents..
