V The similarities between the Jews of the Hellenistic Diaspora and the Qumran sect may also extend beyond the boundaries of theology into the realm of politics, and perhaps into the realm of discourse. First let me address the aspect of politics. Jewish Diaspora literature excels in its expressions of loyalty to the host government. This is the case in the biblical books of Esther and Daniel and in almost any postbiblical diasporan work. It is inconceivable to rebel against the host regime. Thus, for example, 3 Maccabees describes those Jerusalemites who want to take up arms to rebel against Philopator’s plot as “arrogant” (3 Macc 1:22–23: οἱ περὶ τῶν πολιτῶν θρασυνθέντες).

The depth of disappointment behind the terms “lie” and “unfaithful” suggests that the “traitors” were at one time active in the same community as the Teacher. If this is the case, it is likely that the same can be maintained about the Man of the Lie, who goes by another, though similar, name at the opening of the Damascus Document. The latter passage, at CD A 1:10–2:1, refers to the advent and activity of the Teacher at the end of the twenty years of groping. The Teacher made known to the latter generations what he would do in the last generation in the congregation of traitors (‫—)בוגדים‬they are those who depart from the Way; that is the time of which it was written, “As a wayward cow, so did Israel stray” (Hos 4:16)—when arose the Man of Mockery (‫ )איש הלצון‬who sprinkled/spouted (‫ )אשר הטיף‬on Israel waters of the lie (‫ )כזב‬and led them into a chaos without a way .
