Chapter Summary

Glory signifies divinity and divine agency in throne visions of Early Jewish apocalypses. This chapter sketches a more complete picture of the development of the variegated Glory tradition. Theophany and the language of theophany continued to play an important role in early Jewish speculation, and the mingling of the Glory tradition with theophany continued as well. Commonly associated with symbols uniquely peculiar to the Sinaitic revelation the Sinaitic Glory construal forms an identifiable theological tradition functioning to legitimize mediators who reveal eschatological knowledge. Further elaboration of a Royal Glory construal can be detected in the various ways in which "king" and "glory" are collocated e. g., "King of Glory", "Great King in glory", or "King of the glory of the World". Two passages in the book of Tobit reflect indebtedness to the aspect of a prophetic Glory construal.
