Good News

Angel backed by the starsAn evangelist was someone who had God's message of salvation and who took and shared that message. An evangelist was literally "a bringer of good news" The Greek word was "euangelistes." This word was also translated as "to announce well." An angel was an other-than-human type of evangelist, who also carried God's message from and shared it with the people or a particular designated person. The "Good News" and the idea of "going" were tied in with both the role of the angel in past times and the role of the evangelist today.✞

Priests and Prophets

Evangelist at PodiumThroughout history, God has always had two groups of enthusiastic followers. What was true in the Old and the New Testament times is also true today. There were those who represented humans to God, the priestly maintainers of religious order. Then there were those who represented God to humans, the evangelistic, prophetic group. They were people with God's message, who were prepared to tell it no matter what. So, in the New Testament era you had the dual ministry of the evangelist and the priest who were the equivalent in Old Testament times of the prophet and the priest.
