Re:4Q287: Spirit and Messiah
"The Holy Spirit rested on His Messiah" is not the correct reading of
4Q287 (=4QBer b). For the correct reading "[speaking rebe]llion against
the anointed ones of His holy spirit," see J. T. Milik, "Milki-sedeq et
Milki-resa`," JJS 23 (1972), p. 134.
See also my article "Processes of Emergence of Sectarian Texts in
Qumran," Beit Mikra 40/3  (1995), p. 247 (Hebrew).
