You search the Scriptures, for you think in them you have everlasting life.

And they are the ones witnessing concerning Me. John 5:39 LITV. Luke 24:44

Luke 24:25-27 LEB (25)  And he said to them, "O foolish and slow in heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! (26)  Was it not necessary that the Christ suffer these things and enter into his glory?" (27)  And beginning from Moses and from all the prophets, he interpreted to them the things concerning himself in all the scriptures.
Jesus is from Heaven ----- “ Therefore also God exalted him and graciously granted him the name above every name,  (10)  so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven and of those on earth and of those under the earth,  (11)  and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father..” Philippians 2:9-11 LEB  Jesus had always made it clear, where He came from and who He was before He became flesh, albeit in parables. We read that Jesus spoke only in parables. Therefore, the testimony of Jesus about His origins before incarnating must be hidden in His parables. We can meditate on those parables to discover Jesus beyond the flesh. If you are not successful in deciphering the parables, do not fret, He explained all the parables to His disciples in private: And with many parables such as these he was speaking the word to them, as they were able to hear it.  (34)  And he did not speak to them without a parable, but in private he explained everything to his own disciples. Mark 4:33-34 LEB  Jesus was compelled to speak only in parables because He had to fulfill the prophecies of the Old Testament in order that what was spoken through the prophet would be fulfilled, who said, "I will open my mouth in parables; I will proclaim what has been hidden since the creation."  (Matthew 13:35 LEB) The Apostles have passed on the messages to us as He commanded them to do:   Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  (20)  teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days until the end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20 LEB To wit, Apostle John left us a very eloquent testimony on who Jesus was before He became flesh (John 1).


Apostle John’s Theology
























became flesh.

In [ the ] beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1 MKJV The bracketed definite article does not appear neither in Genesis nor in Greek. Eloquently, John compares Jesus to the Voice who called light and other elements of the Creation into existence. The inference is clear as to who the Voice of beginning is. John states that the Word was facing or standing in front of God and that the same Word is also God. Obviously. we are making a mental picture of two separate individuals. When I was a baby in the Faith and when I did not take time to set my heart to understand the Bible, even though the allusion to Genesis is clear, I used to think that the Word was God because He was the Son of God just as a human is a human because he is a son of human. Then, as I study the Bible without malice and applying my own reasoning but honestly and earnestly seeking the truth amidst the cacophony of doctrines and interpretations of spiritual leaders, Jesus has revealed Himself to me so that I am able to understand (Luke 10:22; 24:45). Jesus reveals Himself to each one of us, individually by seeking Him, reading the Bible, hearing the voice of Jesus through the sound doctrines from others. ‘And the Word was God’, according to John, can be rephrased as ‘And the Word was YHWH”’ because the name of the only known God of Israel is YHWH. From the pen of John, we learn that Jesus the Word is YHWH God. When we read that ‘the Word became flesh’, John is saying, by inference, that YHWH God became flesh because the Word in Genesis is not a god but YHWH God. That inference is not an interpretation. And the Word became flesh and took up residence among us, and we saw his glory, glory as of the one and only from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14 LEB Ye call me Master and Lord (YHWH): and ye say well; for so I am.  (John 13:13 KJV) According to the Apostle John, Isaiah saw the glory of Jesus. Jesus had not been around yet when the Prophet Isaiah saw Jesus. John 12:41 LEB (41)  Isaiah said these things because he saw his glory, and he spoke about him. We read about the terrifying encounter of Isaiah with Jesus in Isaiah 6:1-7 In the year of the death of Uzziah the king, I saw the Lord sitting on a high and raised throne, and the hem of his robe was filling the temple.  (2)  Seraphs were standing above him. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.  (3)  And the one called to the other and said, "Holy, holy, holy is Yahweh of hosts! The whole earth is full of his glory."  (4)  And the pivots of the thresholds shook from the sound of those who called, and the house was filled with smoke.  (5)  And I said, "Woe to me! For I am destroyed! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I am living among a people of unclean lips, for my eyes have seen the king, Yahweh of hosts! "  (6)  Then one of the seraphs flew to me, and in his hand was a hot coal he had taken from the altar with tongs.  (7)  And he touched my mouth, and he said, "Look! This has touched your lips and has removed your guilt, and your sin is annulled." Isaiah 6:1-7 LEB  John 12:41 is one out of many passages that prove that Jesus is YHWH God in flesh. Because Jesus came from Heaven and was announced as ADON, ADONAI, or LORD, or Lord , at His birth, that testifies that He was YHWH whom God the Father had made flesh. Speaking of God the Father, from the parables of Jesus we understand that even though YHWH is the Father of the Jews and mankind, the doctrine of God the Father is a new revelation brought about only by Jesus to Judaism. I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. John 17:6 KJV "I have revealed your name to the men whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours, and you have given them to me, and they have kept your word.   John 17:6 LEB And I made known to them your name, and will make it known, in order that the love with which you loved me may be in them, and I may be in them." (John 17:26 LEB) The name YHWH does not require any revelation to the Israelites and the world. Jesus could not have revealed or made known the name YHWH to any Israelites or anyone in the world as the verses below testify. And I made known to them your name, and will make it known, in order that the love with which you loved me may be in them, and I may be in them." (John 17:26 LEB) 1 Chronicles 16:23-36 LEB (23)  Sing to Yahweh, all the earth! Proclaim his salvation from day to day! (24)  Proclaim his glory among the nations, his wondrous works among the peoples! (25)  For Yahweh is great and greatly praised, and he is feared among all gods. (26)  For all the gods of the nations are idols, but Yahweh made the heavens. (27)  Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his place. (28)  Ascribe to Yahweh, O clans of the nations, ascribe to Yahweh glory and strength! (29)  Ascribe to Yahweh the glory of his name! Lift up an offering and come before him! Bow down to Yahweh in the splendor of holiness! (30)  Tremble before him, all the earth; surely the world shall not be shaken. (31)  Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad, and let them tell the peoples, "Yahweh reigns!" (32)  Let the sea roar and its fullness; let the field rejoice and all that is in it. (33)  Then the trees of the forest shall sing for joy before Yahweh, for he comes to judge the earth. (34)  Oh give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good; his loyal love is everlasting. (35)  Then say, "Save us, O God of our salvation; gather us and rescue us from the nations that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your praise. (36)  Blessed be Yahweh the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting!" Then all the people said, "Amen!" and praised Yahweh. Jesus made other declarations about the attributes of God the Father that contrast with the attributes of YHWH God. Also, YHWH God was not the theme of Jesus’s ministry on earth.
The Origins of Jesus Christ


If you are familiar with what Jesus had said about His Persona and the God The Father, you might come to the conclusion that no one can grasp who He is, even if you would touch Him or hear Him every day, as the Apostles did and. yet, did not understand Him (Mark 6:52; Luke 2:50; 9:45; 18:34).

And coming into the parts of Caesarea of Philip, Jesus questioned His disciples, saying,

Whom do men say Me the Son of Man to be?(Matthew 16:13 LITV)

The idea of an elusive Jesus transpires from the question which Jesus posed to His closest entourage about His Persona and the answers to His questions. Note that in the answers given in Matthew 16:14, contrary to what the major Christian denominations have been teaching about Jesus today, nobody was close to our modern view of Jesus as having been an Angel or a special Angel! Teaching that Jesus is an upgraded or a special Angel is the testimony that no intellect or scholar can venture as she or he pleases into Jesus’s realm to break Him down for understanding. Matthew 16:14 LITV (14) And they said, Some say John the Baptist, and others Elijah, and others Jeremiah, or one of the prophets. But, forget about the opinions of the modern evangelists, scholars, spiritual leaders, et cetera, ‘Whom do we Apostolic Foundational Christians say Jesus to be?’. Matthew 16:15-16 LITV He said to them, But you, whom do you say Me to be? (16) And answering, Simon Peter said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God . Peter, one of the first Apostolic Christians, did answer the question correctly but Jesus did not give him any credit for his correct answer. Jesus is saying that no human mind on its own can decipher Him and that we need a unique plugin to get to know Jesus. And answering, Jesus said to him, Blessed are you, Simon, son of Jonah, for flesh and blood did not reveal it to you, but My Father in Heaven. Matthew 16:17 LITV Today, some of us appreciate the testimony of Peter, albeit superficially, while as mentioned elsewhere, some of us disregard his testimony and go beyond the opinions of the contemporaries of Jesus to teach that Jesus was an Angel before His incarnation, or a small god in the like of a Roman Emperor god. However, according to the Q & A session that Jesus held with His Disciples, did Peter confess that Jesus was an Angel, or an upgraded Angel? The answer is “NO”. It was made known to Peter that Jesus is a Son, not an Angel. Did Peter confess that Jesus was Angel Gabriel, or Archangel Michael, or Michael, or Angel of Jehovah? The answer is still ‘NO’ since God the Father revealed to Peter that Jesus is His Son. Jesus did not either tell His entourage that His Father reveal to Peter that He was His Angel. At the baptism of Jesus, God the Father did not utter that Jesus was His Angel (aka Angel of YHWH) who had been transformed into His Son. The New Testament presents Jesus as ‘the Only Begotten Son’ and not as ‘the only begotten Angel, or ‘the only begotten Gabriel, or the only begotten Michael, or the only begotten Angel of Jehovah, et cetera’. How can anyone teach that Jesus was any Angel when Jesus affirms it was His Father who revealed to Peter that He is His Son? Are not those so-called Christian denominations that teach that Jesus is an Angel calling God the Father a liar, or saying that God the Father does not know what He is talking about or that what we read in the New Testament is not correct? Jesus admits that He is YHWH or ADONAI in John 13:13. John 13:13 You call Me the Teacher, and, the Lord. And you say well, for I AM. John 13:13 LITV When Jesus accepted that He is YHWH (aka LORD, Lord in the translations), Jesus did not say ‘you call me an Angel, and you say well, for I AM ans Angel’. Jesus says He is YHWH (aka LORD, Lord in the translations). Jesus made other declarations in parables that He is YHWH God. Consider His declaration about Abraham and Him. John 8:56 Your father Abraham leaped for joy that he should see My day, and he saw, and rejoiced. J ohn 8:56 LITV Jesus did not say that Abraham saw the day of Angel of YHWH, of Gabriel, or of Michael, and rejoiced. Those prominent Angels have NOT been known as Redeemer, Savior, King, YHWH (aka LORD, Lord, Jesus in the translations) who were to have a special day at a certain time in the future and were to be born of a virgin as Immanuel (Isaiah7:14), as LORD (aka YHWH in the translations) in Luke 2:11. Paul stressed that all lips will confess that Jesus is YHWH, according to the verses below. Isaiah 45:23 & Philippians 2:10-11 Isaiah 45:23 LITV (23) I have sworn by Myself, the Word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, that to Me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. Philippians 2:10-11 LITV (10) that at the name of Jesus "every knee should bow," of heavenly ones, and earthly ones, and ones under the earth, (11) and "every tongue should confess" that Jesus Christ is "Lord," to the glory of God the Father. Isa. 45:23 Isaiah 45:23 is a declaration pertaining to YHWH. Apostle Paul attributed the same declaration to Jesus. That is to say that Jesus is not a copycat of YHWH (aka LORD, Lord in the translations) but the very YHWH in flesh. Moreover, in Isaiah 45:23, Jesus swore that every tongue will confess, voluntarily or involuntary that He is YHWH (aka LORD, Lord in the translations). not an Angel. In other words, all the denominations who reject Jesus as YHWH will have to admit hat Jesus is the fearsome YHWH (aka LORD, Lord in the translations). We also read testimony from Apostle John that Prophet Isaiah saw Jesus in His glory as YHWH and he was terrified. Did Isaiah say that He saw one of the Angels? No. Isaiah said these things when he saw His glory, and spoke about Him. John 12:41 LITV Isaiah 6:1-5 LITV (1) In the year that King Uzziah died, then I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up. And His train filled the temple. (2) Above it stood the seraphs. Each one had six wings; with two he covered his face; and with two he covered his feet; and with two he flew. (3) And one cried to the other and said, Holy, holy, holy is Jehovah of Hosts; all the earth is full of His glory! (4) And the doorposts shook from the voice of the one who cried; and the house was filled with smoke. (5) Then I said, Woe is me! For I am cut off; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I live amongst a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, Jehovah of Hosts.
Luke 10:22 LITV All things were delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father; and who is the Father, except the Son, and he to whom the Son may desire to reveal Him .
Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Before Abraham came to be, I AM! John 8:58 LITV
Jesus questioned His disciples, saying, Whom do men say Me the Son of Man to be? (Matthew 16:13 LITV)



It is not possible to fully present on a web page the arguments that establish Jesus as who He was before He incarnated. But, to those who can hear the voice of Jesus and to whom He had revealed Himself, suffice to say that Luke 2:11 identified Jesus as ‘The Lord’ which is the equivalent Greek word that translates the Hebrew tetragrammaton YHWH that obviously cannot be translated into any other language. Also, Luke 2:11 is to be read without the definite or indefinite articles as they do not appear in the Greek. No wisdom warrants the addition of those articles. Thus, the verse reads: For unto you is born this day in [the] city [of] David [a] Saviour, which is Christ [the] Lord. Luke 2:11 KJV Christ is the Greek word for the Hebrew word Messiah and Lord is the Greek word for the Hebrew name YHWH and the words ADON and ADONAI which also refer to YHWH in the translations of the Bible. In other words, when you read the Greek verse from the perspective of the Hebrew credo, you understand that it was YHWH God who incarnated! Jesus does not deny but admits and says that He is YHWH in John 13:13.
