Abstract :
This note deals with two topics reflected in the Qumranic text 11QMelchizedek (11Q13) which shed a certain light on two aspects of the messianic beliefs of the Qumran community: the widening in pre-Christian Judaism of the concept of the redeemer of the eschatological time to include a non-human agent of salvation who may be called 'messiah', as in Christianity; and the indication of the 'messianic' character of the expected eschatological Prophet, announced as a 'messenger' by Isaiah and identified as 'the anointed of the spirit' in 11QMelch.
