    Shalom,

    I have heard of 2 Moshiachs, but I have not heard of one of the lineage of Joshua. I have heard of Kingly Moshiach and Priestly Moshiach. Kingly Moshiach being of the lineage of David and the Priestly Moshiach being of the lineage of Aaron. Those were eminent in the Essene sect of Judaism. Clues to those two Moshiachs are found in many of the Dead Sea Scrolls. There is also a reference to a "third" person known as the Teacher of Righteousness.
