Judaism of the Second Temple Period (Vol. 1) by David Flusser
Dr. David Flusser was a prolific scholar of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and his contributions to research in Jewish apocalypticism, and apocalyptic literature are considerable. With this English translation of many of his essays, Prof. Flusser's insights are now available to a wider audience than ever before.
In this volume, 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, were also broadly influenced by Jewish apocalypticism. Examining the Essenes, their effect on the Hebrew language, the split of sects, and much more, Flusser's collected essays offer an important source of study for any student of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
