Who is this “Angel of the Lord”? We have every reason to believe that this is a pre-Bethlehem, pre-incarnate appearance of the Lord Jesus Christ. So, this is a “Christophany”. Jesus Christ steps out of eternity and into time to bring good news. This is not the only time Jesus showed up in the Old Testament. A few more of His “Christophanies” are: He appeared to Hagar, (Gen. 16:7-14, Gen. 21:16-20). He appeared to Abraham, (Gen.18:10; Gen.18:17, Gen. 22:11). He appeared to Jacob, (Gen. 28:12-15, Gen. 32:24-30). He appeared to Moses, (Exod. 3:4-5, Exod. 23:20, Exod. 33:22). He appeared to Joshua, (Josh. 5:13-15). He appeared to Gideon, (Judg. 6:11-24). He appeared to Samson's parents, (Judg. 13). He appeared to Isaiah, (Isa. 6:1-13). He appeared to the three Hebrews, (Dan. 3:24-25). He appeared to Daniel, (Dan. 6:21-22, Dan. 7:13-14, Dan. 10:5-6). He appeared to Zechariah, (Zech. 1:8-13; 2:8-11; 3:10; 6:12-15). Did You Know? Vic.
