Something more to consider
Reti red professor and uni versi ty dean, StanSeidner contendsi n "TheKnohl Hypothesi sand `Hazon Gabri el,`" that i t refl ects the Apocalypti c beliefsof the day, many whi chare foundi n the Dead
Sea Scrol l s, asantecedent andpredictive wri tingsof Chri sti anity. He al so suggested the use of i nfra -red technologi cal applications, si mi lar to what had been utili zed on DeadSea Scroll Material in
the recent past. Chal l engingKnohl`s"Two Messi ahs" theory, Sei dner notedthat, "Knohl srel i ance upon what he calls, the `Gl ori ficati on Hymn,` i n support of a fi rst Messi ah srel ati onshi pwi th

thee? for your goodnessi sas a morni ng cl oud, andasthe earl y dewi t goeth away. Again, Ephraim, menti oned at the topof th e tablet. If thi stabl et i sapocl yptic i n nature, then onewoul dexpect
