For over 2,000 years Angels have been recognized as the Messengers of God by Christians, Jews, and Muslims. Mormons also recognized Angels from the inception of their religion. In the authoritative books of each of these religions – The Talmud, The Bible, The Koran and The Book of Mormon – detailed accounts of the work of Angels are written.
Their obvious roles in all of these religions is that they are needed as a means of communication from God to man. The English word Angel is derived from the Greek word angelos (messenger), which in turn stems from the Hebrew mal’ak, also meaning, “messenger.” Nevertheless, Angels in the Bible are more than messengers. They constitute the court of heaven and surround the throne of God.
