Referring to Jonathanęs posting and Jimęs reply (two distinct groups, a
notion which I hold, too) about the scribes of the Pharisees.
H.-J. Fabry, who has done several papers on specific questions dealing
with the wider field of Qumran (esp. about "the" law), propagates that the
*scribes (of the Pharisees)* is a metaphor for the *Essens (of Qumran)*
(in a lecture delivered at a Cologne symposium). But he can not explain
why there was a distinction between *scribes* and *scribes of the Essens*.
And he does not take into account the function of *scribes* in secular
Palestine or the Graeco-Roman world. Thus, his concept is explicitly
theoretical and postulated.

Maybe this is of any interest.
Best wishes,
