Angels in the Bible: Jesus and His Legions

Caravaggio's Taking of Christ, 1598

Jesus avoids a smackdown as the Roman soldiers grab Him.  He says, in

Matthew 26:53

“Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels?”

Angels are God’s army.  They can protect Him and they can fight for Him as He wills.  They can also protect us and fight for us as He wills.
