Theophany-Preincarnate manifestations of Christ
8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden at the time of the evening breeze, and they hid themselves from the Lord God among the trees of the garden.
The Hebrew word for “sound” is qol (kole) which means from an unused root meaning to call aloud; a voice. –Strong’s#6963
The verse could read “8 Then the man and his wife heard the “Word” of the Lord God walking in the garden.”
Both Adam and Eve heard the Word of God walking in the garden and who is the Word of God? Jesus Christ according to John 1:1 which says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
Jesus Christ was the one who was walking in the garden because no one has ever seen God the Father according to John 1:18 which says, “No one has ever seen God. The One and Only Son– the One who is at the Father’s side– He has revealed Him.”
Adam couldn’t have seen the Father but he did see Jesus Christ. In the verses below, it will show that God manifests Himself to humanity in the person of Jesus.
8 “Lord,” said Philip, “show us the Father, and that’s enough for us.”
9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been among you all this time without your knowing Me, Philip? The one who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
