Response to And, what have I been saying all along...?
But does that mean he ever showed up?
And ... there WAS another sect, wasn't there? The Nazarenes.
Paul was reported -(in Acts, that is)- to claim to be of a "sect" of the Nazarites ... right?
[ Acts 24:5: We have, in fact, found this man a pestilent fellow, an agitator among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes.
Acts 24:14: But this I admit to you, that according to The Way, which they call a sect, I worship the God of our ancestors, believing everything laid down according to the Law or written in the Prophets. ]
Now this sect may have paralleled the Essenes fairly closely but then ... so do Anglicans parallel Catholics. Does that make them the same?
