What about the mezuzah?

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Training in righteousness

In our study on the use of tefillin we came to the conclusion that it is not possible to defend either side of the argument. In the same scriptures we also see the reference to the writing of the words on the doorpost. This leads to the next question – should we interpret this part literally?

Who were the Essenes?

Dead Sea Scroll from the Essene community at Qumran

We have recently had a lot of exposure to a group of people called the Essenes. The majority view at the moment states that they were the people who lived at Wadi Qumran. They are believed to be the owners of the scrolls that were found in the Judean desert. They are also known for the fact that they did not use the lunar calendar but rather a solar calendar. This makes it clear that they did not follow the norm of the Pharisees and Sadducees of their time. Except for these two facts, what else do we know about this group? Did they have truth that we should be aware of? We will also investigate the potential links between Y´Shua and John the Baptist to the Essenes.
