I'm certainly no expert on holy scripture, but it is my understanding that Angels were created before man. A Catholic friend of mine contends they were created after man. Additionally. I made a comment of St. Michael Archangel to him. I believe I've heard a few prayers and mention of him in Revelation regarding the expulsion of the Evil One from Heaven. He contests that that never happened. The idea of the Evil One being and angel and that he was actually good at one point and dwelt in Heaven amongst the other angels was only brought about by Milton's Paradise Lost. I also believe that the Apocrypha contains reference to angels and archangels, but his only response was "were these supposed books written before or after Paradise Lost?" I have tried to explain things to him as best I can, but he just doesn't seem to believe much of what is in the Bible. I just can't believe he's never heard of the Apocrypha.
