In addition, this unit is jointly sponsoring with the Qumran section a session on the theme "Revelation and Prophecy at Qumran," for which proposals are welcome on any topic related to the theme, including: revealed knowledge and revelatory experience in Second Temple Judaism, reconceptualization(s) of revelation in the Dead Sea Scrolls, prophetic activity at Qumran, Qumran eschatology, the textual history or interpretive history of prophetic books as reflected in the scrolls, and the relationship of prophecy to scriptural interpretation, wisdom, or law in the Dead Sea Scrolls and Second Temple literature.
