Re: Essene name

4QTherapia is purported to be a medical document. Astrological charts and
forecasts were sometimes used for healing purposes as well as were amulets -
all found at Qumran, e.g. 4Q561, 4Q560.  If indeed some of the Yahad members
were of priestly origins we should assume that healing was one of their
major duties.
