Religion Expert B. Whitney Hopler Updated September 04, The Sefer Raziel which means "Book of Raziel" is a Jewish text that is said to have been written by archangel Raziel , the angel of mysteries, to tell the secrets of the universe that angels know to human beings. Raziel is said to have given the book to Adam, the first human being, to help him after he and his wife Eve brought sin into the world and had to leave the Garden of Eden. Although many scholars say that the Sefer Raziel was actually written anonymously by 13th-century authors when the text of it first appeared in circulation , the book says that Raziel wrote down all the mysterious secrets that God revealed to him to deliver to human beings. He was revealed to Adam as the sun went black. From the day you served in prayer, the prayers were heard.
