Actually there are a ton of links, but some are not in the same referencing system that we use in our texts (1QH is common example). So we'd have to look up each one of these or do word searches to find the content. If there's an obvious case we missed you can report it through the app.

We are in the process of adding links for abbreviations, internal entries, and bibliography. These will be released in ver 1.1 in the coming weeks.

At the moment the most disturbing are 4QMMT, 4QShirShab and 4QShir

We checked those out and the omission of links is intentional. Here's the response from our team:

QUMRAN does not follow the standard ("popular titles") versification, but use the formal cave number versification. That is why we cannot link many of the DSS references in DCH. For example, 4QMMT is comprised of six manuscripts, 4Q394-399. There is no way to know which of the six fragments that a "4QMMT" reference in DCH is referring to, without manually identifying which fragment it occurs in, and then writing a link to that specific fragment, such as 4Q394 f1_2ii:10.


That said, we can work on manually identifying more of these links, but we've hit a point of diminishing return for now and need to release it. We've spent months working on this, which has delayed other promised projects. It's simply time to move on. But, as we've done with BDB, BDAG and other resources, we will continue to improve it over time. For what it's worth it currently has almost 60,000 hyperlinks to DSS, Ben Sira and Inscriptions; 537,000 to the Bible.

I hope this helps to clarify things.

It helps and I prefer to have it as it is than to have waited until you have hyperlinked each and every scroll.
