Evidence is cited from Christian (New Testament), Jewish (Talmud), and Roman sources. The speaker draws comparisons between early Christianity and the Essenes. Similarities between the New Testament and the Dead Sea Scrolls, such as baptismal rites, claiming a new covenant, as well as a reference to a messiah are mentioned.
