Is Gen 3:8 a Theophany?

    And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. Gen 3:8

    The inclusion of the word "walking" in this verse seems to imply a physical presence of God and since Jesus Christ is the physical manifestation of God in human form it seems reasonable to view this as a theophany.

    My thoughts: "Voice", in this context, could mean "sound". They heard the "sound" of the LORD God walking in the garden. Yes, I believe it is a "Theophany", as well as a "Christophany".
