What is the appropriate way to respond to corruption?
In the first century, there was a group of Jews called the Essenes who countered the corruption in their day by entirely withdrawing from the rest of society. Scot unpacks how this group formed, their foundational beliefs, and the critical practices of the way this group lived. The Essenes were an essential part of the religious landscape in the first century when Jesus’ Kingdom took root. They also shed necessary light on how the Church can and should be taking root today.
