The Qumran Community
MODULE II INCLUDES
The Historical Backdrop of Ancient Judaism
Consider history prior to the scrolls, beginning with the biblical period and moving forward to focus on the Maccabean revolt, the arrival of the Romans, the reign of King Herod, the life of Jesus, the Zealot uprising, the destruction of Jerusalem, and the fall of Masada.
The Rise of the Jewish Sects
Gain insight into the appearance of Jewish sectarianism in late antiquity—focusing primarily on the Sadducees, Pharisees, Essenes, and Zealots—through the Jewish historian Josephus, along with the Jewish philosopher Philo, the authors of the New Testament books, the later rabbis, and even the Roman polymath Pliny the Elder.
The Dead Sea Site of the Qumran Sect
Journey to the isolated region of Qumran's caves and learn how archaeological excavations of a nearby ruin helped scholars form the most accepted hypothesis of who wrote the scrolls and why the scrolls were deposited in the caves.
Why YBN Institute Inc.
Today, most of Judaism denies the messiahship of Yeshua, (Jesus Hebrew name) and most of Christianity denies or ignores its grafted-in identity in Israel.
Both are mistaken, for Scripture teaches that Yeshua was sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel (Matthew 15:24), and that Gentiles who come to faith in Yeshua become connected to Israel in the same way as a branch is grafted to a tree (Romans 11:17). The result of centuries of wrong teaching is that today, there is no mention of Yeshua in most synagogues, and no mention of God's law and appointed times in most churches. Each of these institutions has preserved some of God's truths, but has denied others. Yeshiva Beth Navi puts it back together the way Scripture intends -- a Yeshua centered faith, and a torah obedient life.
