essene Modern Essene List
In the first century there were three sects of Judaism: the Pharisees, Saducees and Essenes. The Essenes were mystics who many believe were the authors of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Many scholars believe that Jewish Kabbalah had its roots at among the Essenes. The Essenes were fore-runners of Christianity. There is much evidence that Yochanan (John) the immerser (the Baptist) came from an Essene background and that many of the original Jewish followers of Yeshua (Jesus) were Essenes. 134

Jesus Was Vegetarian
This list is for Christians and non-Christians alike, who have reverence for all of God's creation. We recognize that mankind was entrusted with the duty of protecting and caring for the Earth and ALL life upon it. Similarly we accept that Jesus was the leader of the "Nazirene" ("Nazirite-Essene"), Judaic sect that abstained from both drug use and flesh consumption. 38

Jesus was a Vegetarian
For those who are interested in the possibility that Jesus was a vegetarian. Visit JesusVeg for more information about Jesus' possible vegetarianism. 23

essenes The truth about Jesus and Christianity
This is a place to talk about the true history of Jesus and how "modern" Christianity came about; and why the aspects of it's existance is not God's will. The "church" has warped what was pure. This club is not for a specific religion; anyone can come and offer their opinions and thoughts. 17

Books of The Eastern Bible

The Eastern Bible is our preferred Holy Scripture. The Eastern Bible holds two things in common with the Western Bible:

a) Both were cultivated in very specific cultural milieu, the West bearing a Pauline / Hebrew flavour and the East bearing the stamp of St. Thomas and the ancient Scriptures of the East - the
Tradition which Jesus our Lord forwarded, and

b) Both are dedicated to forwarding, in a particular cultural setting, the Yoga of Jesus our Lord and Saviour.

Church of the East is guided by the Spirit to honor and guard, as first among the splendorous, the collection of Scripture known as the Eastern Bible. The Eastern Bible is wholly Jesus-centred in that the Lord either fulfilled these Scriptures by walking in their Way unto perfection, or
in that he facilitated the books as part of his ministry to us.

Essene 13 commandments

Most of us are both familiar with the 10 commandments. But the 10 commandments were taken in abbreviated form from the original set of commandments followed by the Essenes. Here are the original commandments:

Essene Commandments

The Essene Law given by Yahowshua ha Mashiakh (Jesus) in the Gospel of the Nazarenes

1. "Hear O Israel , Thy God is One; Many are My seers, and My prophets. In me all live and move, and have subsistence.

2. You Shall not take away the life of any creature for your pleasure, nor for your profit, nor yet torment it.

3. You Shall not steal the goods of any, nor gather lands and riches to yourselves, beyond your need or use.

4. You shall not eat the flesh , nor drink the blood of any slaughtered creature, not yet anything which brings disorder to your health or senses.

5. You shall not make impure marriages, where love and health are not, nor yet corrupt yourselves, or any creature made pure by the holy One.

6. You shall not bear false witness against any, nor willfully deceive any by a lie to hurt them.

7. You shall not do to others, as you would not that others should do to you.

8. You shall worship One eternal, the Father-Mother in heaven, of whom are all things, and reverence the holy name.

9. You shall revere your fathers and your mothers on earth, whose care is for you, and all the teachers of righteousness.

10. You shall cherish and protect the weak, and those who are oppressed, and all creatures that suffer wrong.

11. You shall work with your hands the things that are good and seemly; so will you eat the fruits of the earth, and live long in the land.

12. You will purify yourselves daily and rest the seventh day from labor, keeping holy the Sabbath and the festivals of your God.

13. You shall do to others, as you would that others should do to you."
