New Word

Today, as part of the sermon at church, I learned a new word...essene.

According to, here is the definition:

Es·sene [es-een, e-seen]
–noun Judaism.
a member of a Palestinian sect, characterized by asceticism, celibacy, and joint holding of property, that flourished from the 2nd century b.c. to the 2nd century a.d.
