Who were the ancient Essenes or Gnostics? What secret doctrines did they uphold? Why did they keep their practices hidden? How do these writings relate to Jesus and His teachings?
This vital book explores the pre-Christian origins of New Testament writings and the little-known mysteries of the ancient Hebrew sect called the Essenes. It explains their Seven Devout Practices, identical with the early Christian Church.
New evidence is presented concerning the conviction and crucifixion of Jesus, revealing the falsehood of traditional accusations against the Jews.
The author shows you why and how "The Sect of the Scrolls", the Nazarenes, the Ebionites, the Gnostics and the Palestinian Christians were one and the same people.
