Gabriel ”God is my strength” One of the two highest-ranking angels in Judaeo-Christian and Mohammedan religious lore. He is the angel of annunciation, resurrection, mercy, vengeance, death, and revelation. Apart from Michael, he is the only angel mentioned by name in the Old Testament—unless the Book of Tobit is included, then Raphael becomes the 3rd-named angel in Scripture. Gabriel presides over Paradise and although he is the ruling prince of the 1st Heaven, he is said to sit on the left-hand side of God (whose dwelling is popularly believed to be the 7th Heaven, or the 10th Heaven). Mohammed claimed that it was Gabriel (Jibril in Islamic) of the ”140 pairs of wings” who dictated to him the Koran, sura by sura. To the Mohammedans, he is the spirit of truth. In Jewish legend it was Gabriel who dealt death and destruction the cities of the plains, including Sodom and Gomorrah. According to Talmud Sanhedrin 95b, it was Gabriel who smote Sennacherib’s hosts ”with a sharpened scythe which had been ready since Creation.” In another place in Talmud, Gabriel prevents Queen Vashti from appearing naked before King Ahasuerus and his guests in order to bring about the election of Esther in her place. In Daniel 8, Daniel falls on his face before Gabriel to learn the meaning of the encounter between the ram and the he-goat. Cabalist identify him as ”the man clothed in linen” (Ezekiel 9, 10). In Daniel 10-11 Michael helps this man, clothed in line. In rabbinic literature, he is prince of justice. Origen calls Gabriel the angel of war. Jerome equates him with Hamon. In Jewish legend, it is Gabriel who performed the miracle of the incident of the three holy men (Hananiah, Mishael, Azariah) who were rescued from the fiery furnace. Other sources credit Michael. Gabriel is also identified as the man-God-angel who wrestled with Jacob at Peniel, even though Michael, Uriel, Metatron, Samael, and Chamuel have also been identified as ”the dark antagonist.” A Mohammedan legend, encouraged by the Koran, sura 20, 88, relates that when the dust from the hoof prints of Gabriel’s horse was thrown into the mouth of the Golden Calf, the Calf at once came to life. According to the Encyclopedia of Islam I, 502, Mohammed confused Gabriel with the Holy Ghost—a confusion explainable by the conflicting accounts in Matthew 1:20 and Luke 1:26 where, in the 1st instance it is the Holy Ghost that begets Mary with Child and, in the 2nd, it is Gabriel who ”came in unto her,” and also then informs her that she ”had found favor with the Lord” and ”would conceive in her womb.” In a Babylonian legend, Gabriel once fell into disgrace ”for not obeying a command exactly as given, and remained for a while outside the heavenly Curtain.” During this period the guardian angel of Persia, Dobiel, acted as Gabriel’s proxy. The name Gabriel is of Chaldean origin and was unknown to the Jews prior to the Captivity. In the original listing of 119 angels of the Parsees, Gabriel’s name is missing. Gabriel is the preceptor angel of Joseph. In Midrash Eleh Ezkerah, he figures in the tale of the legendary 10 Martyrs (Jewish sages). One of these 10, Rabbi Ishmael ascends to Heaven and asks Gabriel why they merit death. Gabriel replies that they are atoning for the sin of the 10 sons of Jacob who sold Joseph into slavery. According to the court testimony of Joan of Arc, Gabriel was who inspired her to go to the succor of the King. In more recent times, Gabriel has been identified as the angel who visited Father George Rapp, leader of the 2nd Advent community in New Harmony, Indiana, leaving his footprint on a limestone slab preserved in the yard of the Maclure-Owen residence.
