Chapter Summary

The reign of the Messiah finally made Israel master of the world. This chapter studies the entrance of the righteous into the incorruptible world through the process of resurrection, judgement and transformations. It discusses this entry as the last incident of transfer of holiness from the corruptible world and study the connection of the entry to the restoration of the temple vessels. The chapter furthers the analysis of 2Baruch's description of the final destiny of Israel in the heavenly other world. It detects the narratives to which 2Baruch alludes, to isolate imageries and metaphors applied by the text, and also discusses how they are used in the description of the heights as a world of promise. The chapter argues that the transfer of Israel and the temple vessels transforms the other world in heaven. When the corruptible world and its proponents are destroyed, there are earthly objects in heaven.
