      Hey Mestizo

      The Manual of Discipline comes from a Jewish sectarian group that
      seems to have called themselves the "Yahad". Some believe these
      Yahad may have been the Essenes, but that is speculation. They do,
      however, have more in common with the Essenes than Gnostics, and
      this text does not generally exhibit any of the destinctive
      attributes of any Gnostic sect.
