New article in JHS: P. Guillaume, The Unlikely Malachi-Jonah Sequence (4QXIIa)
- Dear all,
This is just to let you know that the Journal of Hebrew Scriptures (http://www.jhsonline.org <http://www.jhsonline.org/> ) has recently published the following article:
Philippe Guillaume, "The Unlikely Malachi-Jonah Sequence (4QXIIa)"
Many studies on the formation of the collection of the Twelve Minor Prophets take for granted that the 4QXIIa manuscript provides evidence that the Book of Jonah stood at the end of a scroll of the Twelve and that this sequence could have been the original one. Examination of the reconstruction of the scroll published in the DJD XV volume reveals that the Malachi-Jonah sequence is highly hypothetical and should not be considered as firm evidence.
