Is Saint George and Archangel Michael one and the same ?

Angels can take on human form when ever they desire. 

“Let brotherly love continue. Be not forgetful to entertain strangers; for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” Hebrews 13: 1.2

St. George is the patron saint of England.

 His emblem, a red cross on a white background, is the flag of England.

St George’s emblem was adopted by Richard The Lion Heart and brought to England in the 12th century. The king’s soldiers wore it on their tunics to avoid confusion in battle.

St. George the Dragonslayer”

St. George is believed to have been born in Eastern Turkey in the year A.D. 270. He was a Christian.

 At the age of seventeen he joined the Roman army and soon became renowned for his bravery.

He served under a pagan Emperor but never forgot his Christian faith.

The Emperor gave him many important missions, and on one of these he came to England.

 It was while he was in England that he heard the Emperor was putting all Christians to death and so he returned to Rome to help his brother Christians.

He pleaded with the Emperor to spare their lives. But the Emperor did all he could to persuade St. George to give up his faith, but he refused and was finally beheaded on 23 April, 303.

 On which day we the people of England now celebrate as St Georges day.

Pictures of St George can be found in many church of England churches throughout the land. The pictures above are both found in Anglican churches.

St George

It is said that St George helped some crusaders on the first and third crusades into the Holy land.

When St George came to the leaders of the crusaders they fell on their knees giving thanks to God through Christ Jesus. Or was it the Archangel Michael who came to the Crusaders in human form of St George ?
