The Qumran exhibit included a photograph of 4Q2 Genesisb. Only fragments of this copy of the book of Genesis remain. Found in Qumran Cave 4 in 1952, the original scroll was copied by a scribe in post-Herodian Hebrew script and dates to A.D. 50–68 or perhaps later.
The text includes Genesis 1:1–28 (containing part of the creation account), 2:14–19 (the instruction given to Adam regarding the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil), 4:2–11 (most of the story of Cain and Abel), and 5:13 or 14 (information regarding Cainan). 4Q2 Genesisb is identical to the corresponding Masoretic text except for one minor spelling difference in Genesis 1:15.
Because the manuscript was written on leather that apparently was prepared through inferior means—unlike most of the other Dead Sea Scrolls—some scholars question whether it was really found in one of the Qumran caves.
