Item description for Judaism of the Second Temple Period: Volume 1, Qumran and Apocalypticism (Judaism of the Second Temple Period) by David Flusser & Azzan Yadin...

Overview
David Flusser was a very prolific scholar of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and his contributions to Scrolls research, Apocalypticism, and Apocalyptic literature is inestimable. Now with this English translation of many of his essays, Flusser's insights are available to a wider audience than ever before. Flusser argued that study of the Dead Sea Scrolls should not cause scholars to throw discretion to the wind, creating wild hypotheses with each discovery. He did believe, however, that every publication of a new Qumran text was worth study. He also said that this study does require a willingness to reexamine assumptions and, possibly, abandon former conclusions. In Judaism of the Second Temple Period Flusser examines the influence of apocalypticism on various Jewish sects. He states that the teachings of Jesus, while reflecting first and foremost the views of the sages, are also influenced by Jewish apocalypticism. Examining the Essenes, their effect on Hebrew language, the split of sects, and much more, Flusser's collected essays offer an important source of study for any Dead Sea Scrolls scholar.
