As the text appeared abundantly at Qumran along with all the major OT/HB
works and is cited in CD as having value, it would seem to be
representative, unless you for some reason consider the people who were
responsible for the Qumran deposit as being 'sectarians or adherents of
alternative "Judaisms."' If this is the case, how do you justify the position?


Cheers,
