Topic - Was Jesus an Essene?

When I was a regular church attendee, there was never any debate about whether Jesus was an Essene or not.

While, in this day and age it may be of interest to speculate on this, my point is, does it make any difference to the Christian faith or not. I don't think so. Those who believe will continue to do so, while grumpy old agnostics like me will sit and wait for some conclusive proof.

In other posts, I've questioned whether or not Jesus and the whole story was fact or just a bunch of stories to enhance the mystique of a myth. Let's not even touch on the Old Testament which is so obviously, IMHO, fantasy.

Along these lines, I foundan article in Ancient Origins, which broadly suggests that the Jesus story has some fairly close parallels  with stories of people who long preceeded him.
