Chapter Summary

At the end of the end-time, the manifestation of the Messiah and his reign saves the remnant and overcomes the evil forces of the wicked world. Thus, although Baruch has departed from earth and left his followers in the wilderness, Israel will not be in want of a leader. 2Baruch describes the Messianic era three times, in each of the major sections of apocalyptic revelation in the text (2Baruch 22?30; 35?40; 53? 74). The three descriptions of the Messianic era appear in three different apocalyptic sections of 2Baruch. The Apocalypse of the cloud offers 2Baruch?s last version of the Messianic era. In the final phase of the end-time, when chaos and suffering intensify and the Messianic era is imminent, 2Baruch highlights the role of the Land as shelter for the remnant.
