Hello again, and welcome. I hope you brought your waders this time, because we are about to get deep into another long-held teaching of Christianity. I must spend time clearing up, what was for me on my quest, one of my biggest questions. Were (and are) Jesus Christ and the Archangel Michael the same being, or two different beings? Modern day, traditional Christianity says they are two different beings. This is all part of God’s side of the story, so I want to be as clear as I can be.
In my last post I communicated to you my belief that they are one and the same being. Now I will get into the details of why I believe that. Time for some research on Archangel Michael. We found the Hebrew meaning for the name Michael to be ‘who is like God?’ Now let us find the meaning for archangel. First let us check Wikipedia. Archangel most be two words, let’s begin with the word arch.
Arche (/ˈɑːrki/; Ancient Greek: ἀρχή) is a Greek word with primary senses “beginning”, “origin” or “source of action”.
Now we put the two words together.
An archangel /ˌɑːrkˈeɪndʒəl/ is an angel of high rank. The word “archangel” itself is usually associated with the Abrahamic religions, but beings that are very similar to archangels are found in a number of religious traditions.
The word archangel is derived from the Greek ἀρχάγγελος (arch- + angel, literally chief angel). A powerful angel that leads many other angels, but is still loyal to a deity.
An angel of high rank or, literally, the chief angel. Let us see what gotquestions.org under the question, ‘What are archangels,’ says?
