The origin of angels in the story is quite complicated to understand, because of the angels or similar beings spirit is within many cultures around the world.

Angels are among the three major religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. However, the angels, or divine helpers were also found in Sumerian, Babylonian, Persian, Egyptian and Greek writings as well, and played a big influence on ideas about angels in the major religions themselves.

For example, it is well known that the ancient Sumerian texts prior to the Hebrew book of Genesis, including the idea of the existence of angels. Jewish beliefs about angels were similarly shared with Christianity, and both Judaism and Christianity’s teachings inspired the angels of Islam beliefs about angels.

Although perhaps called different names, benevolant spirit beings similar to angels can also be found in other religions, mythologies and legends.

They all have a similar function as helpful spirit messengers, or angels.
