Hmmm..., that’s really odd, because over in Israel, they’re doing archeological digs in an area that was isolated and had a thriving community and they’ve traced the Dead Sea Scrolls (the material) which were found in caves — to the buried bones of the animals that the skins came from (from DNA testing).
So, they’ve linked up the Dead Sea Scrolls, to a specific place that they are doing archeological digs and it shows that it was an isolated but a thriving community.
What this guy is saying just doesn’t make any sense at all, especially when the very material was traced to the bones buried at this site where there was a thriving community...
Think Babtists...... they split up all the time.
It is reasonable to assume that a group of Jerusalem priests split off and became Essenes at the new community of Qumran.
