Isolate from Culture or Fight It?
Pinchas Shir talks about the Essenes in this episode, but if you want more details, enroll in our course The Shadow of the Essenes in the New Testament. We spend this episode talking about why the Essenes refused to worship at the Temple in Jerusalem and why they seem to disassociate themselves from the rest of society. In contrast, the Zealots were ready to pick up their swords to fight Rome.
