Topic - Was Jesus an Essene?
Posted: 10 Feb 2018 at 03:28 By franciscosan
My proof of what?

Scholars divide Jews of the 1st century BC into Pharisees, Sadducees, Essenes, Zealots, maybe Hellenized Jews (or Herodians?), there may be others.

John the Baptist as an Essene is something put forth in New Testament class.   Both are ascetic.  Is it certain, no.  Is it something that can be reasonably entertained, yes.

Gospel of Thomas, and fragments of Gospel of Mary are in Nag Hammadi library, plus maybe a couple others in there (Gnostic), Gospel of Judas.  

"Jesus an Essene?" is a question.  One is dealing with inductive evidence, which by its very nature cannot be 100% conclusive.
