FWIW, in several of his works, Don Juel has done a nice job in 
tracing the history and development of messianism through the Hebrew 
Bible, Qumran, the "Pseudepigrapha", and the NT.

Jacob Neusner also has several works that trace messianism in later 
Jewish literature.

For purposes of this list, however, it may be best to stick with 
specific texts in the Tanakh (or Qumran).
