abstract
Documents of Qumran — Community Rule — Manual of Discipline — rhetoric — emotion. This study looks at the rhetoric of most of the first two columns of the Community Rule, as evidenced in the document 1QS. The study shows methods used to build emotion in the implied audience, and some of what that emotion implies about the community that used the document. The emotion is used to persuade new and continuing members to maintain the spirit of the yahad—the group of Jews using the document and probably living in Qumran, in Palestine, from at least 100 BCE until about 68 CE.
