4QInstruction is a scroll that was fully brought to the attention of the scholarly community in the 1990’s. 4QInstruction is a witness to a strand from the second temple Palestinian wisdom tradition. Since 4QInstruction is a newer, more recently discovered text then John is, it sheds new light on areas common in both texts that have previously been underresearched or unexplored.
