Is Jesus the “Lord” in the Old Testament?


FAQ: I was taught that Jesus is the “Lord” (Yahweh) in the Old Testament. Do you have any teachings about this?

Yes, in fact we deal with this in our book One God & One Lord. One of the primary reasons for believing this was that in the Old Testament Yahweh would occasionally appear to people. Although this is revolutionary information to many people, it should not be unexpected. God created people to fellowship with them, and so the fact that He would show up in some form should not surprise us.
