Download e-book for kindle: Maccabees, Zadokites,Christians, and Qumran: A New by Robert Eisenman

By Robert Eisenman

ISBN-10: 1301782904

ISBN-13: 9781301782901

This can be Eisenman's unique, ground-breaking paintings during which he criticizes the archaeology and paleography of Qumran because it have been constructed via 'the experts' as much as that point and quite deals his personal hypothesis-starting with the truth that it was once very unlikely to contemplate that the Maccabees have been the so-called "Wicked monks" at Qumran, basically simply because every thing identified approximately them is of the same opinion, for the main half, with the doctrines and positions emanating from the files recognized at the moment to emanate from the realm referred to as "Qumran" alongside the Northwestern a part of the useless Sea and which, consequently, we name "The lifeless Sea Scrolls".

In addition, he exhibits really that the institution opposed to whom the Qumran Scrolls have been in a virtually homogeneous demeanour directed was once quite that of the Herodians and the monks that owed either their appointment and authority to them and the Roman Governors that during due direction both changed or governed both via or at the side of them. He additionally starts off during this paintings to construct his case for the truth that the person got here to be understood in Early Christian background as "James the Righteous" and known as by means of everybody "James the Just"-that similar person identified by way of all people as as "James the Brother of Jesus"-had greatly in universal with "the Righteous instructor" defined and alluded to in lots of useless Sea Scrolls files. for this reason this booklet, initially released within the early Eighties, was once subtitled "A New speculation of Qumran Origins".

It was once essential to topic either the archaeology and paleography of Qumran-upon which the so-called "Establishment" or "Consensus of Qumran students' had all established either their theories and chronology to thoroughgoing feedback. This he has performed, as merely a person who initially studied math and physics, may well do, in a meticulously masterful type. nobody has 'laid a glove' on his research considering that. even as and in parallel model, he starts off to indicate that the 'opponent' of this person in Early Christian historical past, Paul, had concerning the similar volume of features with the person those comparable Qumran files are always pertaining to as "The Spouter of Lying", "the Liar" or "Man of Lying", or "the Scoffer" or Jester" (not somebody to be taken seriously)-but, after all, this isn't an identical person as "the depraved Priest" whom prestigious Qumran 'scholars' at the maximum point insist upon saddling him with simply because they observed "the depraved Priest" and "the mendacity Spouter" defined in Qumran records because the related individual.

Eisenman lays out right here in very transparent phrases that the 2 participants denoted as "the depraved Priest" and "the mendacity Spouter" have been exact and totally separate persons-this back, regardless of what a few 'scholars' try to foist on him with a view to try and make him glance ridiculous . No, to the contrary, in doing so, they just make themselves glance ridiculous. Eisenman is particularly cautious the following - "the Spouter of mendacity" is an inner opponent of "the Righteous instructor" at Qumran. "He denied the legislations in the course of the entire Congregation"! "The depraved Priest - definitely no 'Maccabean'/'Hasmonean' - was once really an institution and possibly Herodian excessive Priest, that means, appointed by means of the "Herodians" and their Roman Overlords.

It used to be this person who was once dependable both for the destruction or the demise of "the Righteous Teacher"-a state of affairs a great deal paralleling a couple of such related events defined, albeit relatively tendentiously, within the New testomony and, after all, via Josephus. an individual who choices up this brief e-book with its copious footnotes (much of the argument being carried out there, so his gainsayers might, in fact, needed to have first had a glance at those sooner than criticizing him-which frequently they've got now not) are usually not disillusioned. it's and used to be his first salvo within the ongoing and operating conflict he has been carrying out with "Consensus" and "Establishment students" ever considering and - to his credits - with out little effect."


Another of his books in a protracted sequence of exact clarification of the true tale of the start of Christianity. I wolfed "James, the Brother of Jesus", and hugely suggest learn comparable. all of the remainder of his "works" movement from that rfile. Prof. Eisenman sheds new gentle on an outdated topic and leads the best way of truth.

The fantastic thing about this e-book is that it truly is either brief and complete -- a a bit startling eye-opener to me and, i believe, to someone else steeped within the fabrications of Sunday-school dogma. each web page illuminates what has been loosely termed "the Qumran files" and the way they relate to the kinfolk of Jesus and the formation of early Christianity. Who else yet a very good historian may possibly supply such a unprecedented paradigm wherein the remainder of us can view old manuscripts so as to see extra truly what truly occurred, instead of ghostly apparitions perceived "through a tumbler darkly."

Dr. Eisenman merits our gratitude. He not just tells it love it was once, however the tale is definitely well worth the price!
