James the Just in the Habakkuk Pesher by Robert Eisenman

By Robert Eisenman

This can be the follow-up paintings to Prof. Eisenman's Maccabees, Zadokites, Christians, and Qumran: a brand new speculation of Qumran Origins, during which he makes an attempt to end up in a case-by-case demeanour the various hypotheses he instructed in that unique ground-breaking paintings.

Both works become, strangely adequate, with regards to the exact same variety of pages and what Prof. Eisenman does during this brief quantity is to move via what's recognized by means of students as "The Habakkuk Pesher" and laymen, "The Habakkuk statement" – "Pesher" in Hebrew having an identical experience as "Commentary" in English – in a line-by-line, passage-by-passage model; and meticulously set forth simply how they could relate to recognized occasions, rules, and happenstances identified from and linked to the lifetime of James or as all Early Christian money owed may have it: "James the simply" (the cognomen, “the only one” after all, being perpetually all-important) or “James the Zaddik.”.

As we all know, he has extended this in a thousand+ web page books in view that: James the Brother of Jesus: the major to Unlocking the secrets and techniques of Early Christianity and the useless Sea Scrolls (1997-98) and the recent testomony Code: The Cup of the Lord, the Damascus Covenant, and the Blood of Christ (2006) and shorter ones: James the Brother of Jesus and the lifeless Sea Scrolls I and II (2012 and 2013); yet those preliminary volumes signify his first forays into this territory. once more, regardless of the effect through a number of critics, who test make gentle of or marginalize his theories or scholarship (as in the event that they may well produce whatever better); as in MZCQ, he totally distinguishes among "the Spouter of Lies” or “Lying” (the so-called “Liar” or “Scoffer” – for Eisenman, a extra actual translation of this final being “the Jester”) and "the depraved Priest"; and this dichotomy has withstood the try out of time and initiated a bunch of imitators.

Not in basic terms does he make it transparent – regardless of a few simplistic “Consensus” theorizing – that those are completely assorted; yet, in doing so, he totally confirms via inner research a primary Century CE date for imperative Qumran unique files (called via so-called ‘consensus scholars’, “Sectarian”), a place he already primarily set forth in MZCQ. the 1st, in fact, is an inner ideological Adversary of the hero of the Scrolls, "the Righteous instructor" – “the Liar” who "denied the legislation in the course of their whole Congregation" – the second one, the current institution excessive Priest and this, definitively now not a “Maccabean” however the reigning “Herodian” one.

It is he who's liable for the demise or destruction of "the Righteous instructor" and a few of these with him – known as revealingly “the bad" – “the Ebionim" within the Hebrew of the Scrolls and extremely most likely akin to "the Ebionites" of Early Church historical past approximately whom Eusebius within the 4th Century is so contemptuous and scathing of. those and lots of different issues are meticulously delineated during this, Eisenman's first foray right into a line-by-line decipherment of the Habakkuk Pesher – having already dealt definitively and intimately with the dual problems with Archaeology and Paleography in MZCQ previous it. either one of those very-hard-to-acquire books won't, it really is was hoping, disappoint, Prof. Eisenman's many admirers.

Review

I'm at the moment interpreting Neil Asher Silberman's e-book at the Scrolls background, "The Hidden Scrolls", during which he exhibits Eisenman on one facet, the consensus students at the different. How lengthy will it's prior to they backtrack and enable the one that is aware what he's conversing approximately inform the tale? there's a lot left to do in dismantling 20 centuries of Christian and Rabbinic Jewish overlaying up. James is the one that had preeminence within the first century. that's now tested. Eisenman in simple terms stops brief while he concludes, "Who and no matter what James was once, so was once Jesus". James was once the grasp and that's transparent, not just as he acknowledged, in Acts 1 the place fictional 'Judas' covers him (and additionally as fictional "Joseph Barsabbas JUSTus"), yet within the BETRAYAL, TOO. It was once in simple terms simply because Eisenman is not conversant in the residing Masters culture (Sant Mat, now the Radha Soami Satsang, Beas > [...] that he did not expand his research to the overwriting of James as 'Judas' in "the Betrayal" coverup of his deploy as successor grasp. here's that ultimate bankruptcy: The Bible says Saviors testomony i attempted telling him in individual, considering he's the one that chanced on James in other places within the gospels and Acts, yet he wasn't receptive. the area of Western faith isn't back to be an analogous. there isn't any going again from what we now find out about the Masters of Palestine, John the Baptist, James the simply, Simeon Cleophas, and Judas Thomas. all of them taught what's this present day known as 'Surat Shabd Yoga' ('Listening to the Sound Union') of John 3:8 and lots of different passages.
