Thiering Conjecture

Hello! I'm a freshman in New Testament who is learning
elementary Greek.

Doesn't someone in this list take serious the Thiering Conjecture?

Barbara Thiering put the conjecture in "Jesus the Man" that
'pesher technique' suggested in Dead Sea Scrolls would reveal
hidden meanigs of NT, concluding that Jesus survived crucifixion,
married twice, had a family with 3 children, taught in Rome
and Minor Asia, and live more than 76 years old.

Her conjecture clarifies, to my seeing, many riddles of
NT translation into English.

I wonder many scholars take her conjecture as an occult.
