Legion, Gabriel, and hasatan
in the movie, Legion, the angels gabriel and michael fought each other after they find themselves on opposing sides! how much truth is there in all this angelogy stuff? especially those shaped by hollywood? or those shaped by over 2,000 years of church tradition?
does the devil really look like this?
below is a good article on angel gabriel as well as on the topic of angelology in the bible:
p.s. those taking the OT wisdom literature class for 2nd semester 2010, you will come across the term hasatan (or commonly translated as Satan in english translations) in the book of Job.
who is this hasatan? fallen angel? god's messenger? god's agent? accuser? god's adversary? the tempter? unsure?
go and read everson's article.
