The War Scroll is a nine & a half foot scroll with as many as 19 columns, found in cave 1 at Qumran.

It seems to be written as a sequel or expository to the eschatological war described in Dan 11-12. The author gives detailed instructions for a ritualized battle in which the sons of light, led by Michael, destroy the Kittim, or the sons of darkness, led by Satan. Many scholars identify the Kittim as an allusion to the Roman Empire.The scroll is a mixture of apocalyptic and legal discussion. The scrolls main theological significance lies in the fact that this is a battle against the Sons of Light and the Sons of Darkness.

Although most scholars believe the story is about good and evil, this in itself could allude to a struggle between the forces of life and death. In the end, God will intervene, conquer, and save his people.
