  1. Also note that in Chronicles, God reveals the plans (tavnit/paradeigma) of the temple to David, who then passes those divinely revealed plans to Solomon–something reminiscent of God revealing the pattern (tavnit) of the tabernacle to Moses (Exodus 25) but absent in the narrative surrounding the temple in 2 Samuel and 1 Kings.

  2. Just a note to get you moving in an ‘out of the box’ direction: I would not neglect Genesis as the origination of much of the intertextual origins of the text.

  3. just a side note: there is no copy of 2 sam 7.4–17 among the dead sea scrolls. 4QSama skips from 7.6–7 (frg. 77) to 7.22–29 (frgs. 78–79).

  4. there is a lot of scholarship on the messianic expectation of the qumran community. i’d check collins’ work on it and see if he brings up any specific examples of how they may have interpreted this idea.

    for some reason i have the temple scroll (11Q19–21) in mind. i’ll do some digging tomorrow when i’m back at the office. it’s interesting stuff!
