THE Angel of the LORD

Judges 13:15-21
New King James Version (NKJV)

15 Then Manoah said to the Angel of the Lord, “Please let us detain You, and we will prepare a young goat for You.”

16 And the Angel of the Lord said to Manoah, “Though you detain Me, I will not eat your food. But if you offer a burnt offering, you must offer it to the Lord.” (For Manoah did not know He was the Angel of the Lord.)

17 Then Manoah said to the Angel of the Lord, “What is Your name, that when Your words come to pass we may honor You?”

18 And the Angel of the Lord said to him, “Why do you ask My name, seeing it is wonderful ( ‘PELE’ in HEBREW )?”

19 So Manoah took the young goat with the grain offering, and offered it upon the rock to the Lord. And He did a wondrous thing while Manoah and his wife looked on— 20 it happened as the flame went up toward heaven from the altar—the Angel of the Lord ascended in the flame of the altar! When Manoah and his wife saw this, they fell on their faces to the ground. 21 When the Angel of the Lord appeared no more to Manoah and his wife, then Manoah knew that Hewas the Angel of the Lord.

Isaiah 9:6
New King James Version (NKJV)

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful ( ‘PELE’ in Hebrew ), Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

  • Child –> Born
  • Son –> Given ( because Jesus existed even before He was born )

Parallel Incidents

The Rich Young Ruler

Luke 18:18-19
New King James Version (NKJV)

18 Now a certain ruler asked Him, saying, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”

19 So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One,that is, God.

  • The Rich Young Ruler was actually flattering Jesus
  • Jesus indirectly saying, though The Rich Young Ruler used the word “Good” to flatter Jesus, it is the actual truth.

The Angel of the Lord to Manoah

Judges 13:15-16
New King James Version (NKJV)

15 Then Manoah said to the Angel of the Lord, “Please let us detain You, and we will prepare a young goat for You.”

16 And the Angel of the Lord said to Manoah, “Though you detain Me, I will not eat your food. But if you offer a burnt offering, you must offer it to the Lord.” (For Manoah did not know He was the Angel of the Lord.)

  • Manoah thinks the Angel of the Lord as a normal man and giving young goat to the Angel of the Lord
  • Normally young goat must be offered to the Lord
  • So Jesus, the Angel of the Lord saying “if you offer a burnt offering, you must offer it to the Lord”. Indirectly it explains that He Himself is the Lord. 

Jesus the burnt offering, seen by Manoah

Judges 13:19-20
New King James Version (NKJV)

19 So Manoah took the young goat with the grain offering, and offered it upon the rock to the Lord. And He did a wondrous thing while Manoah and his wife looked on— 20 it happened as the flame went up toward heaven from the altar—the Angel of the Lord ascended in the flame of the altar! When Manoah and his wife saw this, they fell on their faces to the ground.

  • the Angel of the Lord ascended in the flame of the altar
  • Jesus is our burnt offering, sweet smelling aroma to our Lord

New King James Version (NKJV)

And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.

New King James Version (NKJV)

15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.
