Item description for Enoch And Qumran Origins: New Light On A Forgotten Connection by Gabriele Boccaccini...

Overview
The rediscovery of Enochic Judaism as an ancient movement of dissent within Second Temple Judaism, a movement centered on neither temple nor torah, is a major achievement of contemporary research. After being marginalized, ancient Enoch texts have reemerged as a significant component of the Dead Sea Scrolls library unearthed at Qumran. Enoch and Qumran Origins is the first comprehensive treatment of the complex and forgotten relations between the Qumran community and the Jewish group behind the pseudepigraphal literature of Enoch. The contributors demonstrate that the roots of the Qumran community are to be found in the tradition of the Enoch group rather than that of the Jerusalem priesthood. Framed by Gabriele Boccaccini's introduction and James Charlesworth's conclusion, this book examines the hypotheses of five particularly eminent scholars, resulting in an engaging and substantive discussion among forty-seven specialists from nine countries. The exceptional array of essays from leading international scholars in Second Temple Judaism and Christian origins makes Enoch and Qumran Origins a sine qua non for serious students of this period.

Reviews - What do customers think about Enoch And Qumran Origins: New Light On A Forgotten Connection?

Excellent Resource  May 31, 2008
For those interested in making sense of Christian origins, this book is extremely useful. And those who see Enochic thought permeating parts of the New Testament might suspect that the Qumran group had a connection with the early Christians. This is largely overlooked here, as this collection of scholarly essays deals with the relevance of the Enoch material to the 'Essene' group who composed the sectarian literature of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Surely it can only be a matter of time before a smoking gun reveals that the people of the Dead Sea Scrolls were the disciples of John the Baptist, who were mentioned in the New Testament as sticklers for ritual and tradition while opposing the Temple priesthood...
