free coloring pages of angels
In many religions, an angel is a good spirit. In the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the Qur’an angels appear frequently as the messengers of God. In all of these, angels appear like humans. They usually have wings like a bird. In Christianity angels are helpers of god who are ministers to the faithful. Angels don’t have the ability to sin.
The word angel comes from the Greek word angelos which means “messenger”.
In the Bible angels often punished peoples for their sins. They tested people’s faith in God.
Angels in the Bible are usually pictured with wings and a halo. The wings represent their speed, and the halo represents their holiness. Few angels are named in the Bible apart from Michael and Gabriel.
