In opposition to the popularistic simplifications of the many would-be scholarly books now on the market, this volume is a brilliant example of the best of international scholarship on Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls.

—H. Lichtenberger, Director, Institutum Judaicum Delitzschianum

Charlesworth's demonstration of a basic consensus is sound and salutary exactly because he presents a highly diverse group of major scholars who have reflected on how the Dead Sea Scrolls affect the understanding of Jesus and early Christianity.

—Krister Stendahl, Brandeis University

The teachings of the Dead Sea sect (identified by most scholars with the Essenes) hardly left a trace in Judaism but bequeathed a significant legacy to Christianity. No history of Western civilization can ignore the relationship of Christianity to Essenism. This book is an important contribution to the elucidation of this relationship.

—Magen Broshi, Curator of the Shrine of the Book, the Israel Museum
