What does the Bible say about angels?

The angel Gabriel appears twice in the first couple of chapters of the Gospel according to Luke.  The first response to an angel is usually fear.  They bring a message directly from God- Gabriel announces the birth of both John and Jesus.  They can be a little feisty (Gabriel renders Zechariah unable to speak) and maybe even hungry.  In the Old Testament, Abram and Sarai welcome angels who eat with them and give them the news of their own special baby.  Some believe that Jacob wrestled an angel all night in the book of Genesis.  To learn more about angels in the Bible, look it up in the index and see what else you may find out! – Pastor Trudy Stoffel
