Marc Blazel - 

In counterpoint to the earthly garden Eden (and even that walled garden, Paradise) then, floats the image of the Heavenly City, the new Jerusalem of the book of Revelation. Like a bewjeweled, weightless palace it comes down out of heaven itself "its radiance like a most rare jewel, like jasper, transparent" (Revelation 21:9). Never seen, we know its geometry to be wonderfully complex and clear, its twelves and fours and sevens each assigned a set of complementary cosmic meanings. A city with streets of crystalline gold, gates of solid pearl, and no need for sunlight or moonlight to shine upon it for "the glory of God is its light."
