There is a strong scholarly consensus that ōphthē angelois in 1 Tim 3:16 refers to Jesus being seen by angels at his exaltation. However, the arguments supporting this conclusion are insufficient to justify such uniformity. A fresh analysis of the lexical, contextual, and thematic data suggests that this line refers instead to Jesus’ resurrection appearances. A lexical examination of ōphthē angelois reveals a better translation: “appeared to messengers.” This translation fits comfortably in its context in 1 Timothy. And thematically it is another witness to the significant NT theme of Jesus’ resurrection appearances.
