Which Reference?[edit]

I have issue with the reference to Yoma 79A. I just read Yoma 79A and see no mention of Gabriel. Am I missing something, or is that reference just completely wrong? Clever_Kellom 17:48 15 Feb. 2007 (EST)

Where is the reference showing Gabriel is specifically an archangel?[edit]

I am reading lots of information about Gabriel being mentioned in this book and that, but no references stating that he is an archangel. Can somebody provide their links to the sources that make these assumptions, or edit their comments so that they are correct? For instance, it is only Michael in the Bible who is called an archangel specifically. Also, the claim that Gabriel is called an archangel in the Book of Enoch is incorrect. The only archangel again specifically mentioned in that book is again Michael, although when mentioning him, it says he is "one of the archangels". Still, it does NOT say that Gabriel is an archangel, leading to the presumption that the four angels mentioned are archangels, but not stated.

Sonata Vox Gabrieli[edit]

Added a short bit about the Vox Gabrieli by Sulek. I think this is probably one of the most important music references. Are there any Trombone nerds out there that know more about this piece?

in the section where u say gabrial comes at last ten day of the holy month of ramdan in Lilat al qadar you translated it to the (night of power) when it is relly the (night of destiny)

Languages and references.[edit]

There is some confusion about the necessity of variety in wikipedia sources. Particularly, some users have arbitrarily decided to extirpate source languages other than Hebrew or Greek. There is an unmistakeable aspect of racism within that vile misbehavior. Particularly, it is incorrect in the modern context of archaeological findings from the Roman Calendar years 0-300, during which time original source material is written in Aramaic, Amharic, or Geez. There is a consensus among scholars that the old testaments of Greek and Hebrew are technically translations. Particularly, ample omissions and ambiguous bifurcations of literal meaning abound in the original Hebrew and Greek. Therefore, I recommend that a temporary moratorium be placed on deletions within this article, until agreement can be reached with respect to the diversity and accuracy of Wikipedia. In particular, any contribution other than vandalism should not be undone. — Preceding unsigned comment added by WilliamJennings1989 (talkcontribs) 00:56, 25 March 2016 (UTC)
