Theophany – From the Ancient Greek (ἡ) θεοφάνεια (theophaneia, meaning “appearance of God”), refers to the appearance of a deity to a human or other being.
Throughout both the Old and New Testaments, we see God appear to men and women for various reasons. There are examples of a theophany. In the book of Genesis, we find God making numerous appearance, perhaps more than in any other book of the Bible. Some of the better known appearances include walking with Adam and Eve in the Garden, eating with Abraham, and wrestling with Jacob. In other places, the Lord appears to Moses, Manoah, Ezekiel, for various reasons.
