Where does the belief that humans become angels after death come from?

Who (which groups) have this belief? Is it an idea from other religions that has been incorporated into Christian beliefs? Has it happened to other religions as well?

    That is a question for Christianity. What you have heard about comes from Emmanuel Swedenborg theories. Which is a subject for Christianity, because he was from the Christian confession. Even if part of his reasoning is applying for Jews. Basically we are referring here to Satan temptation to Jesus, where Satan is citing Bible, and Jesus reply by the Bible. Took with a certain gaze, it is possible to see Angels as human beings (short summary). But it is also possible to find the Bible clearly stating this is not the case. – Gibet Mar 1 '18 at 8:00
