BEYOND THE ESSENE HYPOTHESIS
Full Product Description
Building his case on what the ancient records tell us about the Essenes and on a systematic analysis of the documents found at Qumran, Boccaccini argues that the literature betrays the core of an ancient and distinct variety of Second Temple Judaism. Tracing the development of this tradition, Boccaccini shows that the Essene community at Qumran was really the offspring of the Enochic party, which in turn contributed to the birth of parties led by John the Baptist and Jesus. Convincingly argued, this work will surely spark fresh debate in the discussion on the Qumran community and their famous writings.
BEYOND THE ESSENE HYPOTHESIS by Boccaccini was published by Eerdmans Publishing Company in May 1998. The ISBN for BEYOND THE ESSENE HYPOTHESIS is 9780802843609.
