Reading the Hebrew Bible 'with no prior assumptions' is a worthy  exercise.  
 
However, it is also wise to avoid drawing conclusions on what the whole  
puzzle looks like merely on the basis of one or two pieces.

After recent  discussions I have been reading the hebrew bible in a new light 
and have been  trying to 
analyse things from a point of view with no prior assumptions.  This has led 
me to call into question 
my understanding of yhwh's  messengers. I have been reading through Genesis 
and have noted that there  
is nothing that supports the view that these messengers are superior  
heavenly creatures and could 
equally be understood as being godly men  bearing a message from yah.
