The Oxford Illustrated History of the Bible A richly illustrated account of the story of the Bible written by leading scholars.

Concluding Remarks

In the foregoing discussion, we have examined the components of the Tiberian Masoretic tradition. These consist of the Tiberian reading tradition and six written components. The written components were transmitted by scribes but the Tiberian reading tradition was soon forgotten and the Tiberian Masoretic text was read in Jewish communities with other reading traditions.

The written components, apart from the Masoretic treatises and the Masoretic notes, represent ancient traditions that can be traced back hundreds of years before the Masoretes into the Second Temple period. Some elements of the Masoretic notes can be traced to the Talmudic period. The various components constituted closely related but to some extent independent layers of tradition which were not completely harmonized with each other.
