A Christophany is an appearance or non-physical manifestation of Christ . Also, following the example of Justin Martyr who identified the Angel of the Lord with the Logos, some appearances of angels in the Hebrew Bible are also identified by some Christians as preincarnate appearances of Christ .
Proponents of this view see Matthew 23:1–3 and 23:23 as evidence that Jesus did not negate any aspects of the Biblical Torah Law for his followers.
Supersessionism, also called replacement theology, is a Christian doctrine which asserts that the New Covenant through Jesus Christ supersedes the Old Covenant, which was made exclusively with the Jewish people.
In this covenant , God promises to make the Israelites his treasured possession among all people and “a kingdom of priests and a holy nation”, if they follow God’s commandments.
“ Jesus is the Word because through him all things are made,” says Jonathan, 8. “What he said became. By presenting Jesus Christ as the Word through which all things were created, John is saying that God chose Jesus as his messenger/messiah to tell us about himself. Jesus is God and the revealer of God the Father.
Restorationist. Jehovah’s Witnesses, citing a reference to “an archangel’s voice” at 1 Thessalonians 4:16, also believe that “Michael” is another name for Jesus in heaven. They believe Jesus is an archangel in the true sense of the word—the highest spiritual creature.
Yes … God speaks directly to humans. Over 2,000 times in the Old Testament there are phrases such as, “And God spoke to Moses” or “the word of the Lord came to Jonah” or ” God said.” We see an example of this in Jeremiah 1:9. But now that the Scriptures are complete, any word from God must be corroborated by the Bible .

Together the Old Testament and the New Testament make up the Holy Bible . The Old Testament contains the sacred scriptures of the Jewish faith, while Christianity draws on both Old and New Testaments , interpreting the New Testament as the fulfilment of the prophecies of the Old .
The Christian Bible has two sections, the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Old Testament is the original Hebrew Bible, the sacred scriptures of the Jewish faith, written at different times between about 1200 and 165 BC. The New Testament books were written by Christians in the first century AD.
The Jewish tradition that there are 613 commandments (Hebrew: תרי״ג מצוות, romanized: taryag mitzvot) or mitzvot in the Torah (also known as the Law of Moses) is first recorded in the 3rd century CE, when Rabbi Simlai mentioned it in a sermon that is recorded in Talmud Makkot 23b.
“And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them a heart of flesh; that they may walk in My statutes, and keep Mine ordinances, and do them; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God .”
The covenant between Abraham and God consisted of three separate parts: the promised land. the promise of the descendants. the promise of blessing and redemption.
He later confirmed the promise to Abraham’s son Isaac (Genesis 26:3), and then to Isaac’s son Jacob (Genesis 28:13). The Book of Exodus describes the Promised Land in terms of the territory from the River of Egypt to the Euphrates river (Exodus 23:31).
