This article examines some Old Testament and Qumranic texts (or textsthat were in any case used by the Qumran community) of an eschatologicalnature. By focusing on the dual concept salvation–health, itshows how the soteriological announcement is aimed primarily at thebody, addressing the physical integrity of human beings as an inalienableand fundamental fact. At the end of time, salvation and health shallonce again meet and overlap, fi nding completion in each other. Yahweh’ssupreme salvational majesty manifests itself as restorative, capableof healing his people of the evils of history, as well as of the humancondition.
