The Dead Sea Scrolls and the First Christians: Essays and Translations
From The Publisher:
By the co-author of the highly successful The Dead Sea Scrolls Uncovered, this book takes us back to Qumran on the Dead Sea for a further exploration of the relationship between the Dead Sea Scrolls and Christianity's formative years. Included in this volume are Professor Eisenman's two ground-breaking works, Maccabees, Zadokites, Christians and Qumran and James the Just in the Habakkuk Pesher, which were not previously widely available. These classics are a foundation piece of Professor Eisenman's research on the Dead Sea Scrolls and fascinating for the beginner and scholar alike. Most importantly, these works triggered the debate over the relationship of the Dead Sea Scrolls to Christian origins, which ultimately led to the freeing of the Scrolls in the early 1990s, a struggle in which Eisenmann played a pivotal role.
