Taylor Marshall: Is the Angel of the Lord the Pre-Incarnate Christ?

Taylor Marshall: Is the Angel of the Lord the Pre-Incarnate Christ?


So we see by the time of Saint Augustine, the Latin Church is reading “Angel of the Lord” as merely a chief angelic being or generic theophany of God, and not as the Pre-Incarnate Christ.

Saint Ambrose believed the Angel of the Lord was the Pre-Incarnate Christ. Saint Augustine did not.

This is a shame. In my opinion, this interpretive shift with Augustine was a bad theological move.
