Jesus and the Essenes

by Dolores Cannon | 01 December 1999
PAPERBACK
Category: Religion
The emergence of the Dead Sea Scrolls, carefully kept quiet, has opened Pandora's Box and has shown how much dogma and censorship there is in the Church. This book gives a detailed account of Jesus as a person, of his acts as they were, and of the daily realities of Israel of that time. This extraordinary document represents a new form of historical research, and straightens out many open questions and misinterpretations. It marks the beginning of a new revelation of the life and work of Jesus, a person who has had a larger role than many in the building of our modern world. The book takes the form of direct dialogues between a modern researcher and a member of the Qumran Essene community. Alive around the time of Christ, this community has become the focus of ideas about the connection of Jesus\' teachings to earlier traditions. This book gives a full description of the nature and purpose of the community, and the birth and upbringing of Jesus and John the Baptist. Also, it gives Essene renderings of Key Old Testament stories, concerning Moses, Ezekiel, Daniel and others, plus startling insights into ancient history. This information is candid and for real, even about the Dead Sea Scrolls, and many Biblical images and statements are corrected and added to.
