We've Been Expecting You, Part 1:17
For your Sunday reflection:
Meet the Angel of the Lord
Bible: Genesis 16-17; Exodus 3:1-5
The Angel of the Lord appears somewhat unexpectedly in Scripture and says and does things that only God can do. God brings about both the Arabic people in Genesis 16 and the Jewish people in Genesis 17. The sign of the Abrahmic Covenant was for the Jewish people as God showed His covenant-keeping faithfulness, all with a greater view of the Messiah who would eventually be born into this lineage.
