Angels in the Bible

Sometimes even the editors of Angels on Earth are surprised at how many angels there are everywhere—including the Bible!

Working at Angels on Earth, you get used to angels turning up in the least likely places: an apartment building in Brooklyn, a diner on the Interstate, riding in a red pickup truck. Yet I’m always surprised at how often they turn up in the Bible!

Take this morning, when I was looking through the Old Testament to research the latest in our popular video series, “Illuminating Angels.” I found angels guarding the tree of life, leading Moses down the mountain with the Ten Commandments, and bringing down the walls of Jericho with a mighty roar. They’re in the desert with Hagar, in the lion’s den with Daniel, and in the furnace with Shadrach, Meschach and Abenego.

We probably won’t be able to fit it all in a single video. But don’t worry—“Illuminating Angels” is an ongoing series.

Check out the most recent installment in this series: “Warrior Angels.” Then keep an eye out for new videos on angels in the Old Testament and angels in the New Testament, all produced by our multitalented art director Doug Snyder.
