The Ebionites, (from Hebrew אביונים ebyonim, ebionim, meaning the poor or poor ones), were a Jewish Christian sect that flourished throughout the Holy Land at the beginning of the Christian era. Their center was located on the east bank of the river Jordan. [1] They regarded Jesus as the Messiah [2] and insisted on the necessity of following Jewish religious law and rites.[3] The Ebionites used only the Jewish Gospels, revered James the Just and rejected Paul of Tarsus as an apostate from the Law.[4] Their name suggests that they placed a special value on voluntary poverty.
