The Angel of Jehovah, not Jehovah

Posted by David Barron June - 30 - 2011 - Thursday

Many confuse the Angel of Jehovah with Jehovah himself, failing to understand divine agency. Such ones see this angel identified as Jehovah directly, hence the confusion.

The confusion is easily resolved upon recognizing this angel lacks omniscience. While Trinitarians may dismiss this fact with Jesus as a man due to his humanity, such is not possible with the angel. The only possible conclusion is that this angel is not Jehovah ontologically, only representationally.

Zech. 1:12 Then the angel of the Lord said, “O Lord of hosts, how long will You have no compassion for Jerusalem and the cities of Judah, with which You have been indignant these seventy years?”
