Archangels: Jophiel the Spy of God – Companion to the Angel Metatron


The Angel Jophiel is said to be a companion to the angel Metatron. The name meaning “beauty of God”, “divine beauty” also called Iophiel, Iofiel, Jofiel, Yofiel, Youfiel, Zophiel Tsophiel, “Spy of God”, “watchman of God” and Zuriel Tsuriel “my rock is God”, is a non-canonical archangel of wisdom, understanding, and judgement. Jophiel is listed as one of the Seven Archangels in Pseudo-Dionysian teachings. According to the pseudepigraphal Revelation of Moses, another name for Jophiel is Dina. Jophiel/Dina is described as an angel of the seventh heaven, a Cabalistic guardian of the Torah (and wisdom itself), who taught 70 languages to souls at the dawn of creation. The Zohar lists him as a Great Angel Chief in charge of 53 legions who superintend Torah-readings on the Sabbath. C.E. Clement, in his book ‘Angels in Art,’ names Jophiel as the teacher of Ham, Japheth, and Shem. Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa and Thomas Rudd likewise name Jophiel as the teacher of Shem. In Anglican and Episcopal traditions, Jophiel is recognized as an archangel. Jophiel is often depicted in iconography holding a flaming sword.Please watch the video for more information on jOphiel the Spy of God or visit the mythology explored by ANCIENT MYSTERY for many more videos on the Fallen Angels of God, Archangels, demons…among many more ancient myths and legends.
