Although the designation ‘the angel of the Lord’ does not appear in Genesis 32, this text is included because it exhibits the same ambiguity as the explicit ‘angel of the Lord-texts’. READ MORE

Å ena sidan skapade de tidiga kristnas fria hållning till den judiska lagen reaktion och motstånd hos judar som inte ville identifieras med en rörelse som i romerska ögon kunde uppfattas som statsfientlig och på så sätt sätta deras egna social och politiska privilegier på spel.
