Five small fragments from cave
4 at Qumran describing an
eschatological judgment in which a Messiah presides over the
resurrection of the righteous & destruction of the accursed. This
text has become the focus of scholarly debate since its publication in
1992 because it links raising the dead & good news to the poor like
the Christian text in which Jesus answers John the Baptist's question about
whether he is the "one to come" (Matt 11:2-5//Luke 7:20-22).
