CLEMENT OF ALEXANDRIA SAYS IT WAS THE ANGEL JESUS WHO LEAD THE ISRAELITES IN THE WILDERNESS!

GREEK TEXT: "...Ἐνταῦθα [1.] διδάσκαλός ἐστι παιδαγωγίας· καὶ γὰρ ἦν ὡς ἀληθῶς διὰ μὲν Μωσέως παιδαγωγὸς ὁ κύριος τοῦ λαοῦ τοῦ παλαιοῦ, δι' αὑτοῦ δὲ τοῦ νέου καθηγεμὼν λαοῦ, πρόσωπον πρὸς πρόσωπον. Ἰδού, γάρ φησι τῷ Μωσεῖ, ὁ ἄγγελός μου προπορεύεταί σου, τὴν εὐαγγέλιον καὶ ἡγεμόνιον ἐπιστήσας τοῦ λόγου [2.] δύναμιν...” - (The Instructor, Book I, chapter VII, MPG [1.7.58.1,2])

CLEMENT OF ALEXANDRIA (circa. 153-217 C.E.): "...In this place HERE HE IS [THE] TEACHER OF THE INSTRUCTION. For it was in truth, even the Lord, through Moses, the Instructor, even a new leader, but through his intermediate agency, face to face. For "Behold!" as it says to Moses: "MY PERSONAL ANGEL[*] WILL JOURNEY BEFORE YOU," meaning the good news AND LEADERSHIP OF THE POWERFUL LOGOS..." - (Book 1, Chapter 7, “THE INSTRUCTOR,” Or “THE PAEDAGOGUS,” Translated by Matt13weedhacker 29/08/2011)
