The Son of God has always existed, and there are several times in the Old Testament where He may have appeared on earth before He was born.
- Melchizedek (Genesis 14)
- Abraham's visitors (Genesis 18)
- Jacob's wrestling opponent (Genesis 32:22-32)
- The commander of the army (Joshua 5)
WHAT DOES A PARENT OR LEADER NEED TO KNOW?
- God the Son has always existed.
- There are times when someone appeared in the Old Testament who demonstrated the authority of God or spoke as God.
- Unlike prophecies about Jesus, appearances of Jesus are not clarified in Scripture, so take care when teaching them.
