Chapter Summary

This chapter elaborates the ideological and literary aspects of the Gabriel Revelation. Despite the fragmentary nature of the text, the author believes that there is an inner connection between its contents as well as an overall framework whose assorted parts fit together into a coherent whole. Gabriel Revelation contains components that are highly significant for understanding the messianic and apocalyptic developments in the Jewish and Christian worlds. The first section of the inscription contains many statements to the effect that the content of the text is a message from God. At first these are fairly short statements, such as so said the God of Hosts, [Thus] said the Lord, God of Israel. Later on there appear more complex combinations: thus said the Lord of Hosts, the God of Israel; So said the Lord God of Hosts, the God of Israel; Thus said the Lord of Hosts, the God of Israel.
