Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g32 Greek: angelos


"a messenger" (from angello, "to deliver a message"), sent whether by God or by man or by Satan, "is also used of a guardian or representative in Rev 1:20, cp. Mat 18:10; Act 12:15 (where it is better understood as = 'ghost'), superior to man, Hbr 2:7; Psa 8:5, belonging to Heaven, Mat 24:36; Mar 12:25, and to God, Luk 12:8, and engaged in His service, Psa 103:20. "Angels" are spirits, Hbr 1:14, i.e., they have not material bodies as men have; they are either human in form, or can assume the human form when necessary, cp. Luk 24:4, with Luk 24:23, Act 10:3 with Act 10:30.

"They are called 'holy' in Mar 8:38, and 'elect,' 1Ti 5:21, in contrast with some of their original number, Mat 25:41, who 'sinned,' 2Pe 2:4, 'left their proper habitation,' Jud 1:6, oiketerion, a word which occurs again, in the NT, only in 2Cr 5:2. Angels are always spoken of in the masculine gender, the feminine form of the word does not occur."*
[* From Notes on Thessalonians, by Hogg and Vine, p. 229.]

Note: Isangelos, "equal to the angels," occurs in Luk 20:36.
