LabelChristian authors often sought connections between the writings of the Old Testament prophets and the events in the Gospels. The cluster of clouds beneath the angel Gabriel's feet derives from the prophet Isaiah (45:8): "Let the clouds rain the just: let the earth be opened, and bud forth a saviour . . . "
