Did John the Baptist Eat Like a Former Essene?: Locust-Eating in the Ancient Near East and at Qumran

Abstract [en]

In light of the rather common practice of locust-eating in the Ancient Near East and in numerous Jewish writings from Leviticus to Moses Maimonides (1135–1204 c.e.), this article evaluates critically James H. Charlesworth’s thesis that John the Baptist’s eating locusts and honey supports a characterization of the legendary wilderness prophet as a former Essene.
