Jesus Christ is LORD YHWH in the New Testament

5. Proving Jesus is LORD YHWH in the New Testament

Introduction

There are hundreds of verses in the New Testmant where the Greek word 'kurios' is used. Unfortunately none of these verses link appropriately to identify Jesus as Lord YHWH in the Old Testament.

So the Author will present special examples of 'kurios' in the New Testament to prove Jesus is YHWH in the Old Testament.

We know the Septuingt translation of Hebrew into Greek, makes 'YHWH' into 'kurios', and 'adown' into 'kurios' and 'adonay' into 'kurios'. Thus we have lost all links to the Old Testament Hebrew because all these Hebrew words have one word in the New Testament.

So special contexts of 'kurios' are used instead...

(1) Kurios example of YHWH and John the Baptist

Mt 3:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,

  • 2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
  • 3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord 'kurios', make his paths straight.

  • Isa 40:3 ...: Bereitet dem HERRN den Weg, ......(LGB)
  • Mt 3:3 ..: Bereitet dem HERRN den Weg ...." (LGB)

    Does the Luther translation agree that 'adown' is Lord ? Yes !!!! 'Herrn' in OT and NT.

    Isa 40:3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD (YHWH) , make straight in the desert a highway for our God (Elohiym) .

  • 4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:
  • 5 And the glory of the LORD (YHWH) shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD (YHWH) hath spoken it

    If John the Baptist prepares the way of YHWH, who in the New Testament is Jesus, then this proves YHWH in the Old Testament is Jesus-YHWH.

    Notice Jesus-YHWH is a highway for our Elohiym, not a second or brand new Elohiym, thus it is this second Saviour who comes to rescue us, as sinners, that becomes a channel or roadway for His Father's heavenly Elohiym power to flow through His Son... This is what this verse is saying, and this is why we always have a single Elohiym whose powers flow... and a single united system of salvation even though we have two heavenly masculine Beings who work in unity (two YHWH's).

    (2) Kurios example of Satan knowing who Jesus was

  • Mt 4:6 And (Satan) saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God (Elohiym), cast thyself down: for it is written, He (Father YHWH) shall give his angels charge concerning thee (Jesus-YHWH) : and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
  • 7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

  • Ps 91:9 Because thou hast made the LORD(YHWH), which is my refuge, even the most High (showing YHWH is the Father), thy habitation;
  • 10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
  • 11 For he (Father - YHWH) shall give his angels charge over thee (Jesus-YHWH), to keep thee in all thy ways.
  • 12 They (angels) shall bear thee (Jesus-YHWH) up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

    These verses show there are TWO heavenly Beings in the Old Testament, one was Jesus-YHWH, the other Father-YHWH, and Satan knew this, otherwise He would not have quoted the Old Testament concerning this Son of Elohiym... and this Son of Elohiym quotes the Old Testament, because these words were written years before about Himself. They both quote previous words of power, because they both know the Son of God pre-existed since eternity.

    (3) Kurios example The Lord spoke to my Lord

  • Mt 22:44 The LORD (Father-YHWH) said unto my Lord (Adonay Jesus), Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?

  • 110:1 The LORD (Father-YHWH) said unto my Lord (Adonay Jesus) , Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
  • 2 The LORD (Father YHWH) shall send the rod (symbol of Jesus) of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.
  • 3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.
  • 4 The LORD (Father YHWH) hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou (Adonay Jesus) art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
  • 5 The Lord (Adonay Jesus) at thy (Father-YHWH) right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.

    These verses show there are TWO heavenly Beings in the Old Testament, Father-YHWH and Adonay Jesus. The Son is at the Father's right hand in "thy power", His Father's power, Jesus is sent as a 'rod of the Father's strength'. Jesus is also a high priest. Lord Adonay Jesus comes in the dew of youth, as the mystery incarnate One.

    Does Martin Luther agree with this assessment of this famous verse ? Yes !!!!

    Ps 110:1 Ein Psalm Davids. Der HERR sprach zu meinem HERRN:...(LGB)

    Mt 22:44 "Der HERR hat gesagt zu meinem HERRN:...(LGB)

    Martin Luther could have used a German word for 'master' (Meister) but He does not, He uses 'Lord' (Herrn), proving Jesus is LORD in the OT.

    (4) Kurios example Spirit of my Lord

  • Lu 4:18 The Spirit (pneuma) of the Lord (Kurios) is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

    Isa 61:1 The Spirit (ruwach) of the Lord (Adonay Jesus) GOD (Elohiym) is upon me; because the LORD (Father -YHWH) hath anointed me (Adonay Jesus) to preach good tidings unto the meek; he (Father YHWH) hath sent me (Adonay Jesus) to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

    Who is me? There seems to be a mistake in Scripture additions (of Adonay) by Scribes ??

    We know from history Jewish scribes added "Adonay" to YHWH to stop them from pronouncing the Sacred Name, so perhaps we have a mistake in Scripture word addition?

    Here is what Adam Clarke comments say:-

    Verse 1. The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me-"The Spirit of JEHOVAH is upon me"] The Septuagint, Vulgate, and St. Luke, (Lu 4:18,) and a MS., and two old editions omit the word ynda Adonai, the Lord; which was probably added to the text through the superstition of the Jews, to prevent the pronunciation of the word hwhy Jehovah following. See Kennicott on the state of the printed Hebrew text, vol. i., p. 610.

    So here is the verse written correctly...

    Isa 61:1 The Spirit (ruwach) of the Lord (Father-YHWH) GOD (Elohiym) is upon me; because the LORD (Father -YHWH) hath anointed me (Adonay Jesus) to preach good tidings unto the meek; he (Father YHWH) hath sent me (Adonay Jesus) to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

    Here is what Luke writes in Greek, and does not have "Adonay"

  • Lu 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised..(KJV)

    So The Holy Spirit administrates the character flow of the heavenly Father , whose Elohiym heavenly powers flow, over Jesus, to work salvation on earth in human form. The verse shows three divine Beings, but ONE heavenly power flow. This is a system of salvation working for sinners on earth. This is not a single numerical Father YHWH as Jewish faiths recognize, or other religious faiths who do not see more than one Strong Authority in heaven.

    (5) Kurios example .. my Lord

  • Joh 20:28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.

  • Joh 20:28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord ( Adonay YHWH) and my God (Elohiym).

    Here Thomas bows down as says My 'adown' or 'adonay' or 'YHWH' and my 'elohiym'. The Old Testament verses, hundreds of them confirm, this is the only way Thomas could have said this about Jesus. Jesus is never a master, according to Old Testament scriptures, Jesus is Lord, Teacher and Rabbi. Thomas recognizes the Elohiym power flow of Jesus, that comes from His heavenly Father.

    Does Martin Luther agree with this assessment? Yes !!!!
  • Joh 20:28 Thomas antwortete und sprach zu ihm: Mein HERR und mein Gott! (LGB)

    Martin Luther could have used a German word for 'master' (Meister) but He does not, He uses 'Lord' (Herr), proving Jesus is LORD in the NT.

  • (6) Old Testment Lord Jesus

  • Ac 2:25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
  • 26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
  • 27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
  • 28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
  • 29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day

  • Ac 2:25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord (YHWH) always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
  • 26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, andmy tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
  • 27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
  • 28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
  • 29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day

    Paul quotes a passage of Psalms 16:8. Paul speaks of Jesus and David, concerning Him (Jesus) and quotes the Psalm...it is not real clear who is whom, but this is just another occasion that Jesus is referenced as YHWH using Old Testament Scriptures.

  • 36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

  • 36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God (Elohiym - the FAMILY powers of GOD) hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord (Adonay) and Christ.

    Paul concludes a powerful sermon, finishing off saying Jesus is LORD (Adonay YHWH) and Christ (Messiah) Using the Old Testament scriptures as a guide, hundreds of them, it is clear one is not going to reference a King as Master, or a heavenly Being as Master, the Jewish Scholars who made things simple by translating YHWH, Adonay and Adown as Kurios, are simply saying all the New Testament contexts refer to 'Lord'. Therefore, Jesus is LORD Adonay YHWH and Messiah, as Paul exclaims here.

    (7) Old Testment Lord Jesus as messenger of Father YHWH

  • Ac 7:30 And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an angel (maak) of the Lord (YHWH) in a flame of fire in a bush.
  • 31 When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold it, the voice of the Lord (YHWH) came unto him,
  • 32 Saying, I am the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.

    The 'malak' is a messenger, not an angel, who is sent by Father YHWH. In this passage, it seems the messenger speaks to Moses, but in the Old Testmanent Elohiym speaks to Moses, not YHWH only...

  • Ex 3:4 And when the LORD (messenger YHWH) saw that he turned aside to see, God (Elohiym) called unto him out of the midst of the bush

    Why does Stephen, under Holy Spirit speaking, omit Elohiym, suggesting the Lord YHWH speaks to Moses?

    Stephen is making the suggestion the messenger of Father-YHWH speaks to Moses, is an important point, because this same Messenger of the Father spoke face to face to the Jews in both Old Testament times and New Testament times; and they refused to listen to Him...

    (8) Old Testment Lord Jesus as Saviour

  • Acts 7: 37 This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear.
  • 38 This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:

    Stephen speaks of Jesus as a Prophet that Moses says to listen to him. Then Stephen says This Jesus is he, who was in the church in the desert in Exodus times. The same Jesus which was a messenger on Mount Sinai.

    (9) Old Testment Lord Jesus as servant

  • Ro 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord (Adonay YHWH) Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
  • Ro 10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him (YHWH) shall not be ashamed.
  • Ro 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord (YHWH) shall be saved.

  • Ro 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord (YHWH), who hath believed our report?

  • Isa 53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD (YHWH) revealed?

    What nobody can get around, Paul is speaking of Jesus as "Lord" not "Master" .. The verses Paul quotes proves Jesus is no Master, because every verse references YHWH... so we are left with the verses , are they speaking of YHWH sometimes, Lord and Master at other times, just to suit our theories...?

    No Lord Adonay Jesus, was there in Old Testament times...who believed our report, notice "our" report ? Did the Jews believe on the Father and Jesus, in the Old Testament? No Did the Jews believe on the Father and Jesus, in the New Testament? No The same offer of salvation is the same since Adam and Eve sinned, by the same heavenly Beings, the Father and His Son.

    (10) Old Testment Lord Jesus as Elohiym power flow

  • Hebrews 1: 8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom

  • Ps 45:6 Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

    Paul is really amazing to quote Scriptures that do not directly say things as we read them...so under the Holy Spirit Paul makes this statement...that Lord Jesus has a throne..yet the Old Testament verse does not say this... What else could Paul tell us of Lord Jesus in the Old Testament ?

    In summary, these ten samples of Scripture, show Jesus is referenced as Lord Adonay YHWH in the Old Testament, as well as in the New Testament.

    Next we shall study what this all means concerning our salvation.
