Archangel Metatron is said to be the keeper of the Akashic Records, which is also known as the 'Book of Life'. He is unusual, though not unique, in being described as having been a mortal human (Enoch) 'promoted' to the angelic realm. Archangel Metatron is said to be the twin of Archangel Sandalphon, previously the biblical human Elijah.

According to The Third Book of Enoch, an ancient document thought to have been written in the 2nd century AD and also known by other names, the biblical character Enoch (son of Jared, Genesis 5 v18) was transformed into the angel Metatron audio extract.

" This Enoch, whose flesh was turned to flame, his veins to fire, his eye-lashes to flashes of lightning, his eye-balls to flaming torches, and whom God placed on a throne next to the throne of glory, received after this heavenly transformation the name Metatron."

Archangel Metatron has been written about for approaching 2000 years and credited with a wide range of roles, responsibilities and contributions to humanity. For example, according to Rabbinic tradition and writings Archangel Metatron is the most senior angel and serves as a scribe. The influential German scholar and autority on Hebrew and Semitic language, Johann Andreas Eisenmenger (1654-1704) presented Metatron as transmitting daily "orders from God" to other angels, and according to Samael Aun Weor (1917-1977), a Mexican spiritual leader and founder of the 'Universal Christian Gnostic Movement' Archangel Metatron brought provided humanity with the 22 Hebrew letters and the original Tarot to humanity.

The name 'Metatron' does not have the usual suffix 'el' meaning 'of God' and so is not as straighforward to translate or interpret as those of most of the other archangels and many other angels. Another exception to the general rule that the names of archangels end in '-el' is Archangel Sandalphon. Suggested meanings of the name 'Metatron' include 'Angel of the Presence' and 'Next to the Throne of God'.
