Red Head Messiah
My friend Michael Whitenton reminded me of this DSS text:
“Red will be his hair, and moles will be on […] and tiny marks on his thighs, and they will be different from each other … [Al]l their designs against him will fail, and the joy of all living things will be great […] his purposes, because he is the Chosen One of God.” (4Q534 f1i.1-3; 9-10a).
This verifies what I've been telling my students for years, the ultimate messiah is a red-head with an Australian accent.
