I was listening to a radio programme about the Scrolls and Qumran yesterday (I think) and they seemed to be saying some people think it wasn't a monastic community but a pottery factory, and what seemed to be ceremonial baths were just for washing the pots in. Is this a generally held view, or was the man from the Beeb just trying to be controversial?

That is definitely not a widely held view. The ceremonial baths may have been used for ritually washing pots along with people but it sounds like the man from Beeb is trying to make a name for himself (even if only as the man from Beeb Smile

Tom's right, there are numerous questions still surrounding the Qumran community, but being a pottery factory generally isn't one of them Very Happy .

Incidently, if you are interested, the UCLA are doing a rather fun and interesting project in constructing a vitual Qumran the link is http://www.nelc.ucla.edu/qumran/. I hadn't realised what an imposing place it is/was!

Thanks, Tom and Richard. That UCLA site is fascinating.

On the subject of the Dead Sea Scrolls, it is interesting that the fragment of Micah which they contained lends absolutely no support to Matthew 2; 6. The reading in the Dead Sea Scrolls is as follows. "But you O Bethlehem of Ephrathah, too little to be among the thousands of Judah, out of you one shall not come forth to be ruler in Israel".
