Re: orion-list DSS and the Pharisees

Please bear in mind that any mention of pharisees so far in DSS are
creatuve reconstructions: the term does not appear in scrolls except in
MMT the writer thinks his group are porshim-- which is closest to
pharisees that occurs, but I doubt the writer is anyone we would think of
as a pharisee/  on the other hand others have treid to find references to
qumranites and esenes in rabbinic literature, but only in the imagination.

in reality, no matter what the consensus not a single identification
either way is beyond grave doubt.
