Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses number of anthropological premises which are found in Jewish sources and compares them with those found in Paul. This is considered to be valuable because this "slave of Jesus Christ" never leaves any doubt as to his deep allegiance to the Jewish people or repudiates this bond. With the Jews, he shared some "preconceptions" such as the belief in one God, Creator of heaven and earth and the significance of the Old Testament. In the very summons of obedience to the Law as understood by the sect, by breaking with the sins of Israel as they were conceived by the sect, there existed an attempt to take the part of the Prince of Light in the isolation of Qumran. Through the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ, through preaching and faith, man is placed on a broken line-"once ye were-now ye are".

Keywords: anthropological premises; Jesus Christ; Jewish sources; Old Testament; Paul; Qumran
