Angels are often portrayed as winged women. Even aside from the fact that those who are clearly angels in the Bible do not appear as winged women, I have not seen any evidence that the winged women that appear in the Bible are supposed to be angels. Zechariah 5:9-11 reads,
9Then I looked up and saw two women flying toward us, gliding on the wind. They had wings like a stork, and they picked up the basket and flew into the sky.
10“Where are they taking the basket?” I asked the angel.
11He replied, “To the land of Babylonia, where they will build a temple for the basket. And when the temple is ready, they will set the basket there on its pedestal.” (NLT)
It seems that these winged women are sinning by apparently building a temple of sorts to a symbol the angel has already named "Wickedness" (verse 8). Am I wrong? Is there reason to suppose these women are angels? If not, where might such a belief have arisen from? Is there any kind of indication what kind of being these angels are, or what they represent?
