The Teachings of the Essenes from Enoch to the Dead Sea Scrolls
Edmond Bordeaux Szekely
From The Publisher:
Nearly two thousand years have passed since the Son of Man taught the way, the truth and the life to mankind. He brought health to the sick, wisdom to the ignorant and happiness to those in misery.
His words became half forgotten and were not collected till some generations after they were uttered. They have been misunderstood, wrongly annotated, hundreds of times rewritten and hundreds of times transformed, yet they have nevertheless survived almost two thousand years.
And though his words, as we have them today in the New Testament, have been terribly mutilated and deformed, they nevertheless have conquered half of humanity and the whole of the civilization of the West. This fact proves the eternal vitality of the Master's words, and their supreme and incomparable value.
For this reason we have decided to publish the pure, original words of Jesus, translated directly from the Aramaic tongue spoken by Jesus and his beloved disciple John, who alone among Jesus' disciples noted with perfect accuracy his Master's personal teachings.
