The oldest extant copies of the books of the New Testament are in Greek, and none of these use the Hebrew divine name ‘YHWH’. Because NT writers who quoted the Old Testament almost always cited a Greek translation rather than the original Hebrew text – 340 times out of 373, according to Archer and Chirichigno [1] – quotations of OT verses that include the ...

Take note that Hebrew 1 shows that Jesus is different from the angels in that he is related ontologically with God the Father that is why it's really more probable that the author of Hebrews wanted to convey that Jesus is God (in the strictess sense of the word) who sits on an everlasting throne because the immediate context shows that Jesus is God's only ...

Yeah, Jesus is eternal but he isn't Yahweh. He was with Yahweh before anything was created, since nothing was created without Him(Jesus, The Messiah, Yashua, etc.) The Word and God were with each other in the beginning. They are both from everlasting to everlasting, and there was even a prophecy about it. 'His origins will be from days of old, from ...

Yes, see this Paul is apparently citing from the Corinthians’ letter when he says “we all have knowledge” (8:1). It becomes clearer in 8:4 that the knowledge that they are claiming is based on an idiosyncratic interpretation of Deut. 6:4 (and perhaps other idol-rejecting texts of the OT; see, e.g., Deut. 32:17; 2 Kings 19:18; 2 Chron. 13:9; Isa. ...
