Speaker Tony Robbins famously said, "The quality of our life is the quality of our relationships."This is good news because it means we can actually something about the current quality of our relationships, to change the future of them.So what can we do to create healthier new relationships and improve our existing ones?Among the nearly 350 documents (900 manuscripts) discovered, roughly 30% of the scrolls are classified as "sectarian".The most complete manuscript of the Community Rule was found in Cave 1, and was first called the Manual of Discipline by Millar Burrows., Serekh ha Yahad), which is designated 1QS and was previously referred to as the Manual of Discipline, is one of the first scrolls to be discovered near khirbet (ruin of) Qumran, the scrolls found in the eleven caves between 19 are now referred to simply as the Dead Sea Scrolls.The Rule of the Community is a key sectarian document and is seen as definitive for classifying other compositions as sectarian or non-sectarian (1Qp Habakkuk; 1QM; the Hodayot; and CD are other core sectarian documents).It is now designated 1QS (which stands for : "Cave 1 / Qumran / "Serekh" = 'rule').
While the vast majority of scholars would argue that a Jewish religious community in the Second Temple period occupied the site at Qumran and owned the scrolls found in caves nearby, a larger issue related to their identity as "Essenes" continues to be debated to this day.
Belief in the existence of a "rule of thumb" to excuse spousal abuse can be traced as far back as 1782, the year that James Gillray published his satirical cartoon Judge Thumb.
The cartoon lambastes English judge Sir Francis Buller for allegedly ruling that a man may legally beat his wife provided that he used a stick no thicker than his thumb, although there is no other written record of Buller making such a pronouncement.
Legal decisions in Mississippi (1824) and North Carolina (18) make reference to—and reject—an unnamed "old doctrine" or "ancient law" by which a man was allowed to beat his wife with a stick no wider than his thumb.
as claiming the doctrine as a direct origin of the phrase, and the connection gained currency in 1982, when the U. Commission on Civil Rights issued a report on wife abuse titled "Under the Rule of Thumb".
