Please, get with the times and consult some actual competent works that reflect the consensus view. This is not a difficult subject, unless you make it into one. Why is this is so difficult for some of you? You obviously have access to the internet, so you have plenty of avenues of investigation into how the name is seen in the consensus view, yet some of you seem to latch onto the worst possible sites possible concerning the subject, either out of date or written by those not competent enough to even speak on the matter.
Consensus can be wrong, you know?...

Seems one group reasons. Yes it is mans reasoning. That since Michael the Arch Angel has a verse giving Michael a attribute that Jesus has? Man reasons, voilą, Michael was, is, Jesus? And they then began to teach, Jesus is Michael also? Then of course Jesus is a angel being. No bible verse declares this. No verses during or after Jesus Ascension, tell man this either. That Jesus in heaven is a angel again? If bible verses give Jesus titles, attributes and now alongside his Father after Ascension, called only Savior as is giving to Yahweh God. Why does one linking verse alone this group totally feel then, erases all the Jesus and Father links, to all merely a likeness? But one trait alone of Jesus and Michael, is no doubt literal? Perhaps they should give more links from scripture to us? We surely should have more then one they gather this from? Perhaps merely cause Lucifer is clearly in scripture as formally a angel? Jesus had to be? Perhaps as a couple Churches accepting it too? Teach also Jesus and Lucifer are brothers? So one then clearly in scripture was a angel means the other therefore has to bee understood as one too? It then all says? Back in Heaven, Jesus is a glorified Angel for them.
Another questionable teaching is? This group teaches Jesus promises to and when speaking to His Apostles, was only intended for them, the Apostles. As being only of a elite ruling class and never as most Churches teach, for all of us who Overcome? They teach against a Jesus return to the earth then. Give the verse of Jesus telling his Apostles they would see him soon -No More- But why is this to all man? But Jesus other promises declared to man, given to his Apostles is only for them? As part of a ruling class? We surely can say we won't see a flesh Jesus again this declares. But seems they pick and choose what promises are to all who Overcomes, and most to only a ruling class the Apostles are part of.
