Christ, Christians and Christianity, Book I: Jesus an Essene (Dodo Press)

Full Product Description

Edward Planta Nesbit (c. 1825-1900) was a schoolmaster, author and land agent in Australia. His only known work, Christ, Christians and Christianity, Book I: Jesus an Essene was published in 1895. It was intended as the first volume in a series of 7, but he never completed any further volumes. Essenes were apocalyptic ascetics, one of the three (or four) major Jewish schools of Jesus' time, though they were not mentioned in the New Testament. Some scholars theorize that Jesus was an Essene, or close to them. Among these scholars is Pope Benedict XVI, who supposes in his book on Jesus that "it appears that not only John the Baptist, but possibly Jesus and his family as well, were close to the Qumran community."
