This article concerns itself with the interpretation of prophecy in the Qumran commentaries. Interpretation of older Scriptures was a major factor in the intertestamental period. For the first time, systematic commentaries on Old Testament books are produced. The commentaries of Philo originate from this period. The interpretation of the prophecy of Daniel marks a shift in Hebrew interpretation of prophecy.
