Wise does not stray too far from translating and organizing the Dead Sea Scrolls other than to make the occasional comment pointing out any similarities between the Essenes and Christianity without giving his opinion on the matter. For the most part, he leaves the conclusion up to the reader. He also adds a lot of valuable historical context.if the Qumran community/Essenes thought Messiah would be a Melchizedek, and is God incarnate
then that would fit the premise of the OP
How does that square with what Wise thinks they believed (a far as you understand)?
Does he think the Melchi in Gen 14 is a Christophany?
or think the Essenes thought it was that?
