Rabbi Elchanan Lewis

Sivan 18, 5769
Question
Shalom, Did Dead Sea Scrolls named such Prophets, which are omitted by bible?
Answer
I don't know what is written in the dead sea scrolls but it may be they note a true prophet who is not in the Tanach; there were hundreds of thousands of prophets over the history of the Jewish people [megilah 14a] while only a few made it into the Tanach, even though it may very much be that some of them wrote a book of prophesies.
