Angels in Judaism: From the Biblical Period to 100 AD
Hosted By: Haberman Institute
Angels, as we think of them today, are not the same as the “Messengers of God” mentioned in the Hebrew Bible. During the Second Temple period (516 BCE – 70 CE), however, the concept of angelic beings evolved into more or less the view of angels that we have today. With that in mind, it is not surprising that angels are mentioned by their names in the New Testament (1st century CE) and in rabbinic literature (1st to 6th centuries CE).
Trace the evolution of the concept of angels throughout the generations, from the Hebrew Bible through the writings of Josephus.
