    Hi Fellas,

    Great episode. I had a recurring thought about Revelation 12 in your discussion. Your situating it in an Advent-Christmas context made something click a little more for me.

    Do any of you buy the two ideas that Michael the Archangel is the Angel of Yahweh via Jude 1:9 cf. Zechariah 3:1-10 and that the Angel of Yahweh is a theophany or preincarnate christophany? I’m probably looking Alastair’s direction here. ;-)

    If so, does that pull together the two themes of the war in heaven and the birth of the child in Revelation 12 even more tightly as something like two sides of the same coin?

    I’m curious to hear your thoughts.

    Thanks,
    Aaron
