What do you really know about the heavenly host?
Everyone knows that angels have wings, usually carry harps, and that each of us has our own personal guardian angel, right? We all have some preconceptions about angels from movies, television shows, and other media, but you might be surprised to know that a lot of those notions aren’t based on anything from the Bible. If you read Luke 1:26–38 and imagine the angel Gabriel standing before Mary with neatly folded white wings, you’re not getting that picture from anything the Bible itself says.
What the Bible really says about angels is overlooked or filtered through popular myths. If we look closely at the biblical accounts, we see that the appearance of angels terrified the bravest warriors and caused the mightiest of men to fear for their lives.
Discover what the Bible really says.
In his best-seller, The Unseen Realm, Michael Heiser opened the eyes of thousands to seeing the Bible through the supernatural worldview of the ancient world it was written in. In his latest book, Angels, Dr. Heiser reveals what the Bible really says about God’s supernatural servants. His study is grounded in the terms the Bible itself uses to describe members of God’s heavenly host; he examines the terms in their biblical context while drawing on insights from the wider context of the ancient Near Eastern world.
Tremper Longman III, professor at Westmont College, says of the book, “Michael Heiser helps us navigate the biblical teaching on angels. He does so with great insight and care as he explores the Old and New Testament teaching on this important topic.”
