Chapter Summary

The comparative study of messianism in Qumran and the New Testament is a subject that merits separate attention, even though it intersects with eschatological perspectives and the study of apocalyptic texts. This chapter focuses on comparative study of messianism in Qumran and at the origins of emerging Christianity, thereby having in view pre-70 CE traditions that the New Testament writings allow us to reconstruct. It then surveys evidence in Paul, Mark, Q, Matthew, Luke, Acts, John, and the Apocalypse that touches the question of messianism at the origins of Christology and compares it with Qumran literature. This comparative traditio-historical survey aims to highlight contemporary Palestinian Jewish contexts to messianic belief at the time of Jesus that arguably bear on early gospel tradition.

Keywords: emerging Christianity; Messianism; New Testament; Palestinian Jews; Qumran
