Sample text

Lines 9–12; B. lines 13–42; and C. lines 56–76. 32 Messiahs and Resurrection in The Gabriel Revelation A. lines 9–12 This fragmentary unit describes a dialogue between God and the vision’s recipient, who hears the ‘word of God’ (line 9). As noted in the commentary, the references to ‘asking questions’ in lines 10 and 11 presumably served as an introduction to the revelation of the vision that follows. Line 12 is an introductory remark by God, Who announces that He is about to speak of ‘the greatness of Jerusalem,’ a phrase that probably refers to Jerusalem’s miraculous salvation on the eschatological date.

However, the surviving text lacks any clear statement regarding the identity of this vision’s recipient. The words of encouragement in lines 22–23 ‘the angel is supporting you. Do not fear,’ seem to indicate that they are addressed to a human being who is supported by an angel. As noted in the commentary on these lines, the entire scene is based on Daniel 8:16–18, Gabriel’s revelation before Daniel. We may note at this juncture the other points of similarity found between this revelation and The Gabriel Revelation (see the commentary to lines 20, 57, 82 and the above discussion of the ending of the two compositions).
