Angels have always been a definite part of the Christian faith. The general consensus is that angels are messengers of God. Throughout the Bible, angels have often visited people to deliver a message from God. Examples of this are the angels in the New Testament who deliver the message of Jesus’ birth to the shepherds and Gabriel, who told Mary she would bear Jesus. The use of angels in religious art has been prevalent for many centuries although the depiction of angels with wings comes later. Angels are not little pot bellied babies.
