In Matthew 10:32, Jesus says that those who acknowledge him before others he will acknowledge before his "Father in Heaven." Luke 12:8 has a similar saying, where Jesus says that if anyone acknowledges him, he will acknowledge them before the angels of God.
Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven.
I tell you, whoever publicly acknowledges me before others, the Son of Man will also acknowledge before the angels of God.
Assuming Luke had access to the saying as found in Matthew, why does Luke's account record "angels of God" instead of "my Father in heaven"?
