  • Jesus saved Israel out of Egypt

    Glen sent me this email today. He points out that NT writers say that Jesus did many acts in the OT. Of course there is One and Only One God. That God, our Creator, and our Father came down from heaven and was born of a woman to become one of us so that He could die for us. God is LIFE and so can not die. Jesus was fully the One and Only God Almighty and also fully a Man. His manhood died of the cross for our sin. His Godhood raised His Temple ( His human body) from the dead. The Holy Spirit is His Holy Spirit. God appears is three forms, but He is the same God or the same Person, no matter how He appears.

    Jesus saved Israel out of Egypt


    Some Old Testament references to YHWH/Yahweh (God) and to the Ruach Qodesh(Holy Spirit) which are quoted in the New Testament, sometimes have these references replaced with the name Yeshua (Jesus) or Christ in the reference. The New Testament writers wanted to confirm the Deity of Christ by identifying Yeshua (Jesus) with YHWH/Yahweh (God) and the Ruach Qodesh (Holy Spirit).


    Jude, the brother of Jesus, did this when he wrote that it was Jesus who saved Israel out of the land of Egypt and destroyed those who did not believe.

    Jude 5 English Standard Version (ESV)

    5 Now I want to remind you, although you once fully knew it, that Jesus, who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe.

    Some manuscripts although you fully knew it, that the Lord who once saved


    Although there are variant manuscripts, the context makes it clear that the deliverance and destruction was an act performed by Jesus. Other versions, just as does the NOG version below, reveal the action is by Jesus. In the preceding verse (Jude 4), the Master and Lord is Jesus Christ. In the next verse (Jude 5) the "Lord" refers back to "Lord, Jesus Christ " in verse 4. The context in all manuscripts of Jude agree that it was Jesus who saved Israel out of Egypt and afterward destroyed those who did not believe. These stories are in the Book of Exodus where these acts are performed by Yahweh. Jude is identifying Yeshua (Jesus) with YHWH/Yahweh (God).

    References from Jude NOG

    4 Some people have slipped in among you unnoticed. Not long ago they were condemned in writing for the following reason: They are people to whom God means nothing. They use God’s kindness as an excuse for sexual freedom and deny our only Master and Lord, Yeshua Christ.

    5 I want to remind you about what you already know: The Lord (Adonai, Yeshua Christ) once saved his people from Egypt. But on another occasion, He (the Lord, Yeshua Christ) destroyed those who didn’t believe.


    Just as Jude attributes the saving of Israel out of Egypt was an act performed by Lord Yeshua Christ, also the slaying of thousands was an act of the Lord Yeshua Christ.


    The Apostle Paul does the same in 1 Corinthians.

    1 Corinthians 10 Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)

    10 For I do not want you to be unaware, brothers, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all went through the sea, 2 and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, 3 and all ate the same spiritual food, 4 and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they were drinking from a spiritual rock following them. And the rock was Christ. 5 But God was not well-pleased with the majority of them, for they were strewn in the wilderness.

    8 And let us not be committing-sexual-immorality, as some of them committed sexual immorality, and twenty-three thousand fell in one day [Num 25:1-9]. 9 And let us not be putting Christ to the test, as some of them tested, and were being destroyed by the serpents [Num 21:5-6]. 10 And do not be grumbling, like some of them grumbled, and perished by the destroyer [Num 16:41-49].


    The destroyer of Numbers 16:41-49 is identified as Yahwehin Psalm 106, and in the New Testament the Lord YeshuaChrist is identified with Yahweh.
    Psalm 106:25-27 Names of God Bible (NOG)

    25 They complained in their tents.
    They did not obey Yahweh.
    26 Raising His hand, He swore
    that he would kill them in the wilderness,
    27 kill their descendants among the nations,
    and scatter them throughout various lands.


    These are but two of many examples of the way the New Testament writers used the Old Testament to identify Jesus (Yeshua) as the Hebrew God (YHWH/Yahweh).
