G.R.S. Mead was inclined to a similar opinion, as were some of the
schlars who, examining the Dead Sea Scrolls, though Jeus might have
been the Teacher of Righteousness mentioned in them, which would
have meant that Jesus lived about 100 years earlier than commonly
supposed.  Mead even wrote the book, "Did Jesus Live 100 BC?"

Robert Eisenmann, an American Academic, prefers to re-date the
relevant parts of scrolls to a later period, and puts forward the
hypothesis that the Teacher of Righteousness was James the Just, head
of the first Jerusalm "Church."
