roles of angels 200 words


Angels have been active in the lives of believers since the earliest stories from Genesis.  These messengers from God have played a significant role in the story of mankind’s relationship with God described in the Bible.  What kind of things do angels do for God?  What is their role in the lives of believers?  Did their role and activity change substantially from the stories of the Old Testament to the New Testament?  These are the areas we will discuss in this assignment.

  • Read "Angelology " by S. Vinton
  • Prepare two lists concerning angels between the Old Testament and New Testament beliefs.
    • Five ways that angels were involved in the stories of Old Testament believers (with Scripture references).

  • After preparing these lists, reflect on the differences between how angels were part of the biblical story in the Old and New Testaments.
  • Prepare to share your lists and reflections in order to discuss differences, similarities, and changes between the Old and New Testament perceptions.  The reflection and comments must be at least 2 to 3 paragraphs.
