Questions Asked by Angels

This week’s study is one of the few that will literally take you from Genesis to Revelation. The angels asked twenty-four questions for many purposes and to many individuals, from Abraham to John the revelator. Find a new appreciation for the roles angels have played for centuries.

In your journal or notebook, be sure to record: (1) To whom was the question asked? (2) What was the response? (3) What difference did the question make?  (4) What do you realize about God that you didn’t before this week’s quest?

Please post your thoughts and insights. Everyone can  learn from everyone.
