Over the years, news items have circulated about how “hints” and “insights” contained in the original texts among the famous Dead Sea Scrolls discovered in caves near the ancient site of Qumran can be found in the Bible.

What this rumination all means, of course, is that Christianity is, as I contend in my books, largely unoriginal, representing not fresh and new “divine revelation” but, again, the amalgamation of not only the ideas of the Zadokite authors of the Dead Sea Scrolls but also influences from the Essenes, Jews, Samaritans and many others. The scrolls’ so-called “Son of God” text reads much like the story of the Annunciation in the Gospel of Luke.

Hints of the Scrolls in Bible To understand how the Dead Sea Scrolls influenced early Christianity, just turn to the New Testament. and the only scroll to emerge virtually intact from the caves at Qumran, its messianic message is quoted in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, John and Luke, the earliest of which wasn’t written until around A. And the Scrolls’ “Blessing of the Wise” echoes the beatitudes of Matthew’s Sermon on the Mount….

No “historical” founder was necessary at all to speak these words, as they are a rehash of extant sayings.

(Even in this patent literary device the gospels cannot agree, as Luke -49 depicts the Sermon as having taken place on a .) It is easy to see why the Catholic Church would blanche upon the discovery of these scrolls, as it could be – and has been – argued that these texts erode the very foundation of Christianity.

Ancient Jewish historian Josephus also mentions the sect of the Essenes, who are traditionally associated with Qumran, in a “by default” argument.

However, scholar Solomon Schecter – who discovered a scroll at Cairo that was later found at Qumran – points to a heretical sect of Sadducees or origin of the DSS and this group’s obvious influence on the New Testament.

The fragment predates every other copy of Revelation, where John, the mysterious author, mentions the Mark of the Beast as the tattoo you’ll have to get if you want to conduct business in the new apocalyptic world.
