They are in the midrash, the old testament the new testament and they are significant in the beginning (Genesis) and all through the age of the patriarchs as those with grace and who move among the clouds appearing sometimes to warn, sometimes to inform and sometimes to comfort. Angels in the Bible bring news, tidings, and they can even be evil, as was Satan the greatest of the fallen ones.
