Jesus, the Essenes, and Christian Origins - JETS Review




“Joseph ... displays an impressive knowledge of the secondary literature ... [and] argues here with impressive detail for halakhic intersections whereby the DSS may throw light on the historical Jesus ... Simon Joseph’s book is a good place to get up to date on the debates alluded to in the title. It is well written and solidly researched and deserves to have a voice in the continuing discussion.”
