We find angels in various forms in the Bible. They belong to the heavenly royal suite, form the heavenly legion and are regarded as powers between heaven and earth. They are mediators between God and humans, represent God’s presence among humans and govern their destinies. Some even have names. And yet a lot remains unresolved. What about these remarkable mediators? The lecture reads some tracks of angels in biblical history.
