Angels were messengers.
Fasinating article on the history of Angels.
Jesus was an angel until Emperor Constantine…bizarre to think eh? Angels were prophets who roamed the globe doing good deeds. Then written words and religion took hold of the masses and the authorities saw how beneficial it would be to accept Jesus as the son of God and encompass him into the living religion.
Jesus was originally like St. Christopher. Although perhaps, more of a story teller than a doing of good deeds. He was first accepted as a saint and then changed to the son of god because that is what he said he was. That’s nice, to be taken at your word.
