The Angel of the Lord

April 23, 2017 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: Judges

Topic: Other Scripture: Judges 6:11–6:24

The Angel of the Lord

Judges 6:11-24

April 23, 2017




I.     The Angel of the Lord is the visible manifestation of God. Judges 6:11-24, Exodus 3:2-6, 33:20




II.   The Angel of the Lord is the visible manifestation of God the Son. 1 Chronicles 21:18,27; Zechariah 1:12; John 1:18; Colossians 1:15



III. Three things the Angel of the Lord teaches us:

      A. Christ is the God who sees. Genesis 16:10-13



      B. We need to admit our weakness and cling to Christ. Genesis 32:24-30



      C. Christ is able to declare the guilty innocent. Zechariah 3:1-6



Questions for reflection:

  • What is the rationale for seeing the Angel of the Lord as both God and the second Person of the Trinity?
  • How does seeing the active presence of God the Son in the Old Testament add to or change your understanding of Christ?
  • Jacob is an example of someone who in his weakness learned to cling to Christ in order to gain a blessing. What does it mean for us to "cling to Christ" in the present and not just when we are in a crisis?
