What is the meaning of the name the, Essenes and their teachings in relation to Jesus, the Christ?
Could there be another Jesus, the Christ in ancient Idian or Egypt before the birth of the biblical Jesus and its teachings and are there many Christos, meaning "Anointed One", which was a practice in ancient Egypt among its A'aferi?
I hope this post will clarify some of your questions.

Esau and Jacob
“The Cabalists say that the soul of Esau, whom the Arabs call Ais, passed into the body of Jesus Christ by metempsychosis, and that Jesus and Esau are one.”

By Arabs, (in Quran) he is called Essa, while Christ is always called Essa son of Mary.
Esau / Edom was the true carrier of Abrahamic religion.
Genesis 36 tells us that the first born son of Esau and Adah, the Hittite, was named Eliphaz.
Eliphaz was the carrier of knowledge of Abrahamic religion and of the blessing.
