The Angel Of The Lord


Thank you for your sharing your knowledge of the Word. My question is on Judges 2 in the KJV it says an angel ( small a ) of the Lord and in the ( NKJV) it says the Angel of the Lord. Is there any significant difference here and which is the most accurate?


The phrase “The Angel of the LORD” is typically treated as an Old Testament appearance of the Lord Jesus. Since the angel in Judges 2:1-5 is speaking in the first person, voicing criticism and assigning consequences, it appears that He’s the Lord. Therefore I think the phrase “The Angel of the LORD” is more appropriate.
