Re: orion Chinese?
Chinese munks could have visited Qumran. I will have to look it up,
but China did make diplomatic contact with the Romans. Munks may have
followed with the opening of the Spice Road? They may have had a sort of
cultural exchange in Qumran resulting Chineses characters being written
upon the scrolls. If Chinese is in the Is. Scroll, all that means is that
they was contact with an educated Chinese man. This is very possible. It
is even possible that it was a Chinese Jew. A critical point that helped
the spread of Christianity in the Far East was the opening of safe roads
into those regions.
