The First Critical Edition of II-Isaiah

The 2000-year-old Dead Sea Scrolls predate other biblical manuscripts by centuries and have revolutionized study of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament text. Their rich evidence makes possible through the multi-volume Oxford Hebrew Bible a much-improved, critically established edition, as all the Greek and Latin classics and the New Testament have. As Chief Editor of the Biblical Scrolls, I edited the official publication of the 20 Isaiah scrolls and thus was chosen to do the OHB II-Isaiah volume. Every biblical scholar knows that in the medieval textus receptus there are mistakes and secondary readings, yet those are to this day printed in the main text of the Hebrew Bible. The proposed OHB II-Isaiah volume offers the best possible critical text, and will make available in both print and digital form to Bible translators, biblical scholars, students, and eventually the public (through Bible translations) a superior edition of one of the most important and beloved books of the Bible.
