No, this is Kilmonism. Let me see if I can make it clearer. Josephus,
Pliny and Philo give snapshots of the Essenes at one point in time. The
texts, if they are
of Essene origin...or an Essene-like group...give many snapshots taken
over a long period of time. What better example of the shifts and
changes in a particular sect
than the texts of Christianity? Why not also with the DSS?
