|ANGEL OF THE LORD |
The Angel Jehovah, the usual title of Christ in the Old Testament. Compare Genesis 16:7-13; 22:11-18; 31:11-13; 32:24-30; Exodus 3:2-6,14; 23:20; Judges 2:1-23; 13:16-22; Acts 7:30-38. Christ thus appears in the Patriarchal, the Mosaic, and the Christian dispensation as the same Jehovah, revealing the Father to men, and carrying forward the same great plan for the redemption of his people, Isaiah 63:9.
