The writer of the epistle to the Hebrews refers, briefly, to 
'the cherubim of glory' 'downshadowing the hilasterion'.

If they are 'of glory' then how is it that they cast a shadow ?

And what is the 'hilasterion' ? [It is not a 'mercy' 'seat'.]

What are these, that appear in the very beginning of scripture at the garden of Eden ?

Why are they mentioned in so many books of the bible ?
In Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Samuel, Kings, Chronicles, Psalms, Isaiah, Ezekiel and Hebrews ?

[And why not in the Apocalypse ?]

And who is the man called 'Cherub' in Ezra and Nehemiah ?

The fact is that God has revealed something glorious in a thread that runs right through scripture.

To God be all the glory.
