Revelation in the Patriarchal Period, Part 2 — The Angel of Jehovah

Lane Tipton and Camden Bucey speak about theophanies before turning  to pages 72–76 of Geerhardus Vos’s Biblical Theology to speak about the Angel of Jehovah, or the Angel of the Lord. The presence of the Angel punctuates epochal moments in covenant history, and his presence is critical during the patriarchal period. Camden’s article, “The Lord and His Messengers: Toward a Trinitarian Interpretation of Malachi 3:1–4,” which was mentioned during the program, was published in The Confessional Presbyterian, Volume 7 (2011).

  1. Nice show! Helpful distinctions.

    Question: how does the discussion early on here regarding theophanies which do not reveal or focus on personal distinctions in the godhead relate to Dr. Oliphint’s thesis of the centrality of divine condescension *in the Son* throughout redemptive history, a la his “old exegesis” of John 1? Thanks.
