GABRIEL ARCHANGEL – 2 TROY OUNCE – 39MM
3 in stock
Gabriel, the archangel, announced to the Virgin Mary that she had been chosen to bear the Son of God (Luke 1:27-38).
Because of this, he has traditionally become associated with other message-bearing angels in the Bible: appearing to Zacharias to tell him that his wife Elizabeth would have a son, to Joachim, the father of the Virgin Mary, and, in the Old Testament, to the mother of Samson, in the same role.
In paintings of the Annunciation, he appears before the Virgin carrying a lily, his attribute, and sometimes with a scroll on which the words he greeted her in Saint Luke’s Gospel are written.
