Samaritan Pentateuch

Samaritan Pentateuch Overview

The Samaritan Pentateuch is agreed by most scholars to go back to at least 200 b.c.e. However tradition holds that this text reaches as far back to Josiah in 610 b.c.e. when the scroll or law of the Lord was rediscovered and rededicated in the temple in the original paleo-Hebrew language.
