ABSTRACT
The article focuses on how the Dead Sea Scrolls affects the issue on the Old Testament canon. It says that canon is a collection of sacred and authoritative books by a religious community. It states that fragments of all Old Testament books were found in the scroll except for the book of Esther. It mentions that Dead Sea Scrolls do not offer definitive conclusion to broader discussion of how the Jewish community thought about their canon.
