    Qumran (Hebrew: קומראן; Arabic: خربة قمران ‎ Khirbet Qumran) is an archaeological site in the West Bank managed by Israel's Qumran National Park. It is located on a dry marl plateau about km (1 mi) from the northwestern shore of the Dead Sea, near the Israeli settlement and kibbutz of Hellenistic period settlement was constructed during the reign of John Hyrcanus Founded: Between – BCE or slightly later.   A recent conference at the Hebrew University sponsored by the Orion Center for the Study of the Dead Sea Scrolls and other organizations focused on "a path in the wilderness," the Qumran community.

    A Limited Critique of Lehmann's Jesus Report. The specific task here is to test one of the central theses of Lehmann's Jesus Report. According to Lehmann, the Qumran community on the Dead Sea was the "cradle of Christianity.". The Community Rule Dead Sea Scroll says that the whole purpose of the Essene sect’s presence in isolated Qumran was to “prepare the way in the desert” for the Messiah; and they believed this in the hope of fulfilling Isaiah’s prophecy, endearing themselves to God and to the Messiah when He should arrive on the scene (1QS –22).

    The Qumran community was driven from its wilderness retreat by the Romans in AD 68, leaving its library of scrolls hidden in caves for safe-keeping.. Although the Essenes existed during the time of Christ, none of the scrolls refer to him or to any other New Testament personality.. Ruins of the sect’s communal site remain, including a watchtower, a dining hall, cisterns and cemeteries.   Bergsma’s book was an interesting read that gave me some insight into the writers of the Dead Sea Scrolls, but his comparisons and arguments as to the Essenes and their Scrolls leading to Jesus.

John the Baptizer, who was possibly a cousin of Jesus, may have had some relation to the community that lived at Qumran. Not long after the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls at Qumran inscholars noted the similarities between certain Qumran texts such as the Rule of the Community and the descriptions of John the Baptizer in the New Testament.

It is in that rugged cliff face, on the banks of the Dead Sea, in this arid, desolate climate, that the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered at the site known as Khirbet Qumran.

The Scrolls were discovered, according to the story that, now, many people know, of a shepherd boy wandering.

Joseph’s careful examination of a number of distinctive passages in the Jesus tradition in light of Qumran-Essene texts focuses on major points of contact between the Qumran-Essene community and early Christianity in four areas of belief and practice: covenant identity, messianism, eschatology, and halakhah (legal.

This, despite the fact that the priesthood was the highest ranking office in the Qumran community. It's break with the sacrificial rituals is seen by most scholars to be the result of priestly rivalry. Qumran was at odds with the Jerusalem priesthood and had boycotted the Temple.

This is not true of Jesus and his disciples, however. In sum, the community was a Jewish sect that went into the wilderness to prepare the way. The members were priests, Levites, common people, women and children included; but the priests.

In his earlier book The Mystery of the Copper Scroll of Qumran, Robert Feather analyzed the Dead Sea Scroll engraved on copper that is considered the work of the secretive, devout Jewish sect known as the Essenes, who lived at Qumran around the time of Jesus.

To continue his research into the Essene community's way of life and how its beliefs. In my opinion, one of the strongest features of Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls is the numerous quotations from the scrolls themselves, especially the Community Rule and the Damascus Document, which outlines the history, aims, and rules of the one that stays with me the most, though, come from a scrap discovered in Cave 4: Great will he be called and he will be.
