Old Testament and Judaism scholars examine scholarship on Ben Sira manuscripts discovered since the late 19th century. In sections on discovery and disputes, the Hebrew manuscripts and rabbinic circles, the poetry of the book, and the language of the book they consider such topics as some first editions of Genizah manuscripts of Ben Sira: approaches and reproaches, the Persian glosses and the text of Manuscript B revisited, the synoptic problem and the reception of the Ben Sira manuscripts, the theological and philosophical concepts of Ben Sira, and the contribution of the language of the Book of Ben Sira to biblical Hebrew philology.
