Question: What do angels look like? (Evangelical Christian)


According to the Bible, angels are spiritual beings created by God to serve Him. They are often described as having wings, but it is unclear if these wings are physical or simply a symbolic representation of their ability to move quickly and effortlessly. Angels are also often depicted as being radiant, with a glowing aura or halo.

In terms of physical appearance, the Bible does not provide much detail. However, there are a few instances where angels are described as having a human-like form. For example, when the angel Gabriel appeared to Mary to announce the birth of Jesus, he was described as a man. Similarly, in the book of Genesis, angels are described as physically wrestling with Jacob.

Some theologians have suggested that angels do not have a physical form at all, but rather exist purely as spiritual beings. In this view, any descriptions of angels as having wings or human-like forms should be understood as metaphorical rather than literal.

Ultimately, the question of what angels look like is secondary to the role they play in God’s plan. Whether they have wings or not, angels serve as messengers and helpers to God’s people, carrying out His will and protecting us from harm.
