Metatron – “Standing at the throne” In Jewish mythology (aggadicheskoy and Talmudic) “altar angel”, the closest to God, directly from him receiving orders. In other Talmudic sources Metatron is identified with Enoch, whom God took to heaven and made the Supreme angel. This merges the characteristics of Metatron as the one who came in human flesh and in the spirit of a fire (i.e. angelic). The light emanating from him is part of the radiance of the heavenly throne (which is the starting point in the imagery of Metatron), on which he alone has the right to sit (according to another version, he sits behind the throne).
