Character-
istics
Along with Michael, he's one of two angels named in the Hebrew Bible, the Christian and Catholic Bible, and the Qur'an. Charming, communicative, artistic, diplomatic, and helpful with interpersonal relationships. Along with Gabriel, he's one of two angels named in the Hebrew Bible, the Christian and Catholic Bible, and the Qur'an. He is the only angel mentioned as an archangel in the Christian and Catholic Bible. Strong, ambitious, authoritative, protective, and fearless. Also believed to be the protector of Israel. Even though Raphael is not mentioned in most major religious texts, he is found in the Book of Tobit, a non-canonical book (apocrypha) included in the Catholic Bible. Gentle, compassionate, skillful, knowledgable, and conscious of health issues. The only archangel not found in any main religious texts. Instead, he plays a large role in the Book of Enoch, a non-canonical text (apocrypha) not found in the Christian or the Catholic Bible. Soothing, wise, generous, and nurturing of the earth's natural resources.
