Yahweh in the First Testament and Jesus in John’s Gospel

John says that Jesus is the embodiment of God, the God of Israel, so
one would expect that looking at Yahweh would tell you things you can
see in Jesus as John portrays him, and that looking at John’s Jesus
would tell you things you can see in Yahweh. This paper considers what
Yahweh was like as the God of grace and truth, in Israel’s story from
beginning to end, in his speaking in the Torah where he lays the law
down, in his speaking through prophets where he confronts his people
with warnings and promises, and in the Psalms and elsewhere where he
shows himself open to his people’s protests as well as their
enthusiasm about him. And to that portrait of grace and truth, at each
point the paper juxtaposes what John’s Jesus was like.
