Mason, E. You Are a Priest Forever: Second Temple Jewish Messianism and the Priestly Christology of the Epistle to the Hebrews (2008)

Kuhn, Karl Georg. “The Two Messiahs of Aaron and Israel.” New Testament Studies I(1954/55): 168-80.

Liver, J. “The Doctrine of the Two Messiahs in Sectarian Literature in the Time of the Second Commonwealth.” Harvard Theological Review 52 (1959): 149-85.
