Gabriel is one of the two angels whom the Bible names (the other is Michael). Gabriel is one of the archangels, the “angels of presence” who stand before God’s throne interceding for men. In the Old Testament, he was sent to interpret Daniels visions. In the New Testament, Gabriel is sent to Zechariah to announce the birth of John the Baptist and to Mary to announce the birth of Jesus. Some literature mistakenly identify unnamed angels as Gabriel.
