In Christian mythology, a angel is a benevolent spirit created by God. The Hebrew word for angel also means "messenger".
They perform various tasks, like delivering messages from God to humans, acting as executioners and warriors, and protecting humans from harm, and telling God that he is holy.
Only two Angels are mentioned by name in the Christian Bible: Gabriel and Michael. However in the Apocryphal books there are five more: Raphael, Uriel, Raguel, Sariel, and Jerahmeel.
