Review of Gregor Geiger, Das hebräische Partizip in den Texten aus der judäischen Wüste


Arnet, Samuel (2015). Review of Gregor Geiger, Das hebräische Partizip in den Texten aus der judäischen Wüste. Review of Biblical Literature:1-4.

Abstract

The function of the participle within the Hebrew tense system has considerably changed between biblical and postbiblical Hebrew. This investigation studies the participle in the Hebrew manuscripts from the Judaean Desert, its formation, its usage, and its meaning, compared with those in other Hebrew traditions and dialects, especially the language of the Hebrew Bible. The biblical Hebrew tense system continues to be used in the Scrolls, while there is a clear difference between the tense system of the Scrolls and that of mishnaic Hebrew. This fact allows us to draw conclusions in the field of language studies; but it also provides us with a piece of the puzzle in our understanding of the sociology and religion of the Qumran community.
