Who is St Michael?
St Michael, the defender of heaven, the supreme commander of the Angel Army, and the guardian of the Garden of Eden appointed by God, is an archangel mentioned in the Bible in Jewish, Christian, and Islamic teachings.
In Hebrew, Michael means "who is like God" (mi-who, ke-as or like, El-deity), which is traditionally interpreted as a rhetorical question: "Who is like God?" (which expects an answer in the negative) to imply that no one is like God.
In this way, Michael is reinterpreted as a symbol of humility before God. In Christian paintings and sculptures, St Michael often appears as a boy with long blond hair, holding a red cross (or a red cross-shaped sword) fighting a dragon or standing on a dragon. There are many descriptions and praises of him in the Bible. He not only has the most beautiful appearance, but also has the courage and incomparable power that mortals do not have which makes him one of the bravest angel by God's side!
St Michael in the Records
- In the Book of Daniel, St Michael is described as the great prince who stands up for the children of Daniel’s people to against the angel prince of the kingdom of Persia. St Michael is recognized by an angel in the book as the protector of Israel at the end of the world as well. Since then, he plays a significant role in Christianity.
- In the Book of Revelation, St Michael is powerful and heroic to lead God's armies to defeat Satan's forces during the war in heaven. Satan, an evil dragon was thrown to the earth by St Michael and eventually lost the battle.
- In the Epistle of Jude, St Michael is recognized as an Archangel and he is a character that is full of benevolence. During the debate about the body of Moses with the devil, instead of bringing out offensive condemnation, he says, “May the Lord rebuke you!”
- In the Dead Sea Scrolls, St Michael is described as the leader and the Prince of Light, leading the army of God against the evil dark side led by Baal (means master) in the War of the Sons of Light Against the Sons of Darkness.
Christian sanctuaries of Michael appeared in the 4th century, when he was first described as a healing angel, and then over time as a protector and the director of the army of God against the battle of evil. By the 6th century devotions to Archangel Michael were widespread both in the Eastern and Western Churches. Over time, teachings on Michael began to vary among Christian denominations.
