My experience

Who is Jehovah in the Old Testament?

Not Impossible

In Unger’s Bible Dictionary on pp 682, it says that the Jehovah of the OT is Jesus of the NT. Jesus’ name does not appear in the OT, and Jehovah is not in the NT. Would you like me to repeat that?

Check and see, I did. I tried and discovered that the tetragram (YHWH) does not exist in the NT. I searched Abington’s Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible. I also found it in Chas. Spurgeon’s Devotional on December 25th morning, where it says, “Jesus is Jehovah incarnate.”

(Gen 1:26, MKJV)  “And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creepers creeping on the earth.”

The translation in Genesis 1:26 is interpreted as “Eloyhim.” In Strong’s Concordance, the definition is a plural God. The passage “in Our image,” is the key to the Trinity, but one of many.

The I AM

(Exo 3:14, MKJV) ” And God said to Moses, I AM THAT I AM. And He said, So you shall say to the sons of Israel, I AM has sent me to you.”

(Exo 33:20, MKJV)  “And He said You cannot see My face. For there no man can see Me and live.
