The name Gabriel comes from the Hebrew meaning "Man of God." It has alternately been translated "God is mighty" or "the strength/power of God." The Prologue from Ohrid explains his name this way: "Man-God. The Holy Fathers, in speaking about the Annunciation, interpret that an archangel with such a name was sent to signify who and what He would be like, who must be born of the All-Pure One. Therefore, He will be Man-God, mighty and powerful God." Gabriel and Michael are the archangels who figure most prominently in the Bible, though it could be argued that Gabriel's role is the better developed. In the Old Testament, he is only mentioned by name in two visions of the Prophet Daniel (see Daniel 8 and 9). Here he explains to Daniel the future of Israel. Holy Tradition also credits Gabriel with inspiring the Prophet Moses to write either Genesis or the entire Pentateuch. Later Jewish Rabbinical literature states that he was the angelwho taught Joseph the 70 languages needed to rule in...
Because the Angels are incorporeal beings, though they nevertheless take on human form when appearing to mankind, it can be difficult to differentiate one from another in icons. However, Gabriel is usually portrayed with certain distinguishing characteristics. He typically wears blue or white garments; he holds either a lily (representing the Theotokos), a trumpet, a shining lantern, a branch from Paradise presented to him by the Theotokos, or a spear in his right hand and often a mirror—made of jasper and with a Χ (the first letter of Christ (Χριστος) in Greek)—in his left hand. He should not be confused with the Archangel Michael, who carries a sword, shield, date-tree branch, and in the other hand a spear, white banner (possibly with scarlet cross) and tends to wear red. Michael's specific mission is to suppress enemies of the true Church (hence the military theme), while Gabriel's is to announce mankind's salvation.

Gabriel, according to the Earth religion of Christianity, was an archangel. In 2268, Dr. McCoy quipped that just once he would like to transport down to a primitive planet and say, "Behold, I am the Archangel Gabriel!" Spock, however, did not find any humor in breaking the Prime Directive, to which McCoy agreeably retorted, "You could hardly claim to be an angel with those pointed ears, but ...

U Bibliji se prvi puta pojavljuje u Starom zavjetu u knjizi proroka Daniela, gdje dolazi Danijelu kako bi mu objasnio viziju ovna i koze i priopćio mu pretkazanje sedamdeset tjedana. Također, on je taj koji je pomogao Mojsiju da razdvoji Crveno more u trenutku kada su Židovi bježali pred Egipćanima. U Novom zavjetu Gabriel je taj koji navješćuje Zahariji da će mu se roditi sin, Ivan Krstitelj, a Djevici Mariji da će roditi Isusa. Ponekad se spominje kao arkanđeo koji puše u rog nagovještajući time "Sudnji dan".
