"Carsten Peter Thiede's, Eyewitness to Jesus, written with journalist Matthew d'Ancona, established him as one of the leading figures on the history and texts of the first century." "Now, in this new book, Thiede focuses on what are, perhaps, the most enigmatic ancient documents ever found - the Dead Sea Scrolls. Drawing on his own pioneering methods in restoring the scrolls, Thiede reveals that the Essene library represented by the scrolls demonstrates that the first Christians were essentially a Jewish movement, not a radically new and fundamentally different religion. This perspective clearly has major implications: it affects both how we view the scrolls, and it changes how we consider the history of first-century Christianity."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
