Read Jesus the Wicked Priest How Christianity Was Born of an Essene Schism Marvin Vining ↠ 8 Summary Jesus the Wicked Priest How Christianity Was Born of an Essene Schism Free download Ç eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Scrolls to the actual life and teachings of Jesus Marvin Vining builds from the controversial work of Barbara Thiering to demonstrate that the Scrolls do speak directly to the origins of Christianity and even reflect a mirror image of the Gospels from the perspective of Jesus's enemiesChristianity arose out of a schism between the exclusivist rigid and militant views of the Essenes and the inclusivist tolerant and nonviolent views of Jesus Jesus was raised an Essene but he refused to follow their orthodoxy Vining shows that the Dead Sea Scrolls are written in a secret coded language. The Essenes were to Jesus as the Sophists were to Socrates as the medieval Catholics were to Luther They were his dialectical baptism by fireAlthough Thiering and I differ on lot of details such as the identification of the Righteous Teacher or the extent of Jesus s break with the Essenes I am much in agreement with her overall viewsMarvin ViningDr Thiering is an intelligent and persuasive lady but her theories about the Scrolls lead her into absurdities In fact the New Testament says nothing direct at all about the Essene movement and the Dead Sea Scrolls tell us nothing direct at all about Christianity Dr CB Forbes Department of Ancient History Macuarie UniversityThis is certainly a book with hard uestions both for Christians and Jews It traces the emergence of Christianity back to a uniue sect of believers the Essenes Thus one first uestion to start with Did Jesus himself lead an Essenian schismVining s search and argumentation are based mainly on the Dead Sea Scrolls but not exclusively of course He believes in a complex relationship between Jesus and the Essenes Don t get surprised or alarmed when you read Marvin Vining saying about the real Jesus Unlike the Essenes Jesus was not an ascetic Far from it as Charlesworth puts it Jesus loved a good party cf Jn 2 1 11 Jesus drank hard wine He was even called a glutton and a drunkard Mathew 1119Vining believes Jesus half brother James was an Essene so was John the Baptist The Dead Sea Scrolls had a Zoroastrian influence As a teacher Jesus began with the Essenes They believed in reincarnation Therefore Vining shows his utter surprise as why Christianity is among the great religions the single one which doesn t admit the reincarnation ideaThe author is a Christian man one who hopes for a better understanding between Jews and Christians despite his daring thesis One which took him 14 years to write down I do not agree with some of the author s assertions Starting with title of the book which is uite unfortunate It collides with the hopes of Vining Then there s the role of an incarnated Gabriel in the Virgin birth just preposterous to say the least Was Jesus an Essene Some really doubt about thatThus while Jesus doubtless shared the common Jewish attachment to the Torah we have no evidence that he cared for the sort of supererogatory piety of the Essenes nor the application of purity laws to life outside the Temple that appears in varying degrees to have preoccupied the Pharisees The fact that Jesus preached openly to the Jewish crowds over is contrary to the Essene secrecy evident in the sectarian DSS and in Josephus Jesus might just possibly have had an association with the Essenes before he embarked on his ministry ceasing to be one of their number when he began to preach and healin Deciphering the Dead Sea Scrolls by Ariel DavidIf Vining wants to redefine the Christian faith as he wrote he s got into trouble On September 14th 1992 Time magazine published an article by Richard N Ostling titled Is Jesus in the Dead Sea Scrolls In the article Ostling seemed encouraged to affirm the connection between the old texts found in old umran and the origins of Christianity But he also uoted a polemic author Barbara Thiering who also got inspiration from the scrolls of Australia s University of Sydney she tells us of a Jesus who was crucified but secretly revived at the Dea Sea and who wed a woman bishop at midnight on March 17 AD 50 Barbara ThieringIn fact Vining too often uotes Thiering in his book But sometimes hypotheses go too farlike imagination itself I think both Thiering and Vining went too far Mind you I am not discarding the validity of the old texts rather uestioning their interpretation or as Geza Vermes in the above article says my concern is simply to find out what this text means I would add what this text REALLY means Some of the texts are not complete or are fragmented and demand interpolation and extrapolation And translations sometimes are not consensual So aren t interpretations Then who is was the Teacher of Righteousness Vining identifies him with Gabriel incarnate Yet there are other views In the Time article above mentioned a scholar named Robert Eisenman of the California State Long Beach shows a different view he believes the Teacher of Righteousness was James the New testament brother of Jesus and a martyr of the Jerusalem church Eisenman affirms also that the James umran faction was aggressive apocalyptic nationalist messianic and violent Very violent This faction was opposed by the Apostle Paul and his Hellenized movement which rejected Jewish law and was otherworldly cosmopolitan and forgiving Another scholar cited in the article is Michael Wise of the University of Chicago Michael and Eisenman seem to agree on that certain passages of text 4S21 of the Dead Sea Scrolls resemble the words of Jesus in Luke 4 Other texts 428S seem to announce the coming of a Messiah from the stump of Jesse the branch of David just like Isaiah 111 4 wroteThe debate is meant to start even if only in the minds and hearts of the readers4 stars for the historical search effort

The title s so horrible If the author can t distinguish between a wicked priest such as ones who would play unfortunate games with altar boys and a religious leader not always a priest who would participate or lead a religious schism which is a normal trend in any developing religion than one would be too gullible to believe that the only thingy the author got wrong in this book is its titleThe Judaism Christianity schism was always on the plate did anyone think Christianity isn t a schism from the Judaic religion If so said people need to learn their history pronto Yep I ve always been extra leery of Christians and Jews openly dismissing each other religions It s eyeball roll inducing since both have a lot in common than otherwiseA very early DNF
