Angel Action Figure

If you were hoping to re-enact the announcement of Jesus’ birth with action figures one day, well, you’re going to be happy.  I found this set on Amazon.

I can think of a lot of other scenes to re-enact as well.  For instance, the angel Gabriel driving Adam and Eve out of Eden.  Ken and Barbie would come in handy for that drama.  Or maybe you want to show your Sunday school class how the angel appeared to Paul on his tempest-tossed prison ship and told him that Paul would live through the shipwreck.  Or you could create an entire stop-motion movie of the Book of Revelations.  Oh, the possibilities are endless.

Archangel Gabriel Looks Like Barry White

Gabriel

The Angel Gabriel, gilt bronze, late 15th-early 16th century by anonymous Netherlandish

Did you know that the Archangel Gabriel resembles Barry White?  Think I’m kidding?  Read this passage in the book of Daniel and let me know what you think.

Daniel 10:5-6

I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, a certain man clothed in linen, whose waist was girded with gold of Uphaz! His body was like beryl, his face like the appearance of lightning, his eyes like torches of fire, his arms and feet like burnished bronze in color, and the sound of his words like the voice of a multitude.

C’mon, the burnished bronze skin, eyes like torches, and a voice like a multitude?  I’m just sayin’.  Who does that remind you of?
