Chapter Summary

God glorified Moses with a vision of the back of the divine attributes, and only sent a likeness of God through him to the unbelieving Israelites. Moses took part in the form of the ark on the mountain by divine inspiration. The Jewish people alone cared for the prophets they saw the miracles and wonders of Christ in his goodness and rejected the Lord and redeemer. Abgar in his kingdom did not know the scriptures and had not seen any miracles, and yet in faith he made haste to establish contact in glory with the source of mercy. This chapter presents 15 plates, some of which depict the Mandylion, the Synaxarion, the Abgar letters, and the Menaion.

Keywords: Abgar letters; God; Jewish people; Mandylion; Menaion; Moses; Synaxarion
