B 35 Qumran and the Jewish Jesus


Bizarre theories abound concerning the Dead Sea Scrolls and Jesus - but they do not stand up to scrutiny. Yet, when read carefully, the scrolls from Qumran do shed important light on the Judaism of Jesus' day and on the significance of Jesus' own teaching.

Here a world-renowned scholar of the scrolls lays the bizarre theories to rest and offers some striking insights into Jesus' teaching and his claims, offering important background for any reader of the New Testament.
