As Christians, we Worship, Believe in, Rely On, and Love the Lord of the New Testament. Jesus the Christ. Is He the same Lord of the Old Testament? No.
In the Old Testament, the Word for Lord is Jehovah or Yahwey, from the Hebrew who were forbidden to pronounce the Name of God. It means: THE ETERNAL ONE, THE EXISTENT ONE
In the New Testament the word for Lord is Kurios, it means, Supreme in Authority, Controler, God, Lord, Master
The Lord of the NT, gave His life to be a Blood Sacrifice for the Lord of the OT so that we might be saved. So who was the Lord of the OT?
He IS the Father who gave His only begotten Son, to be the Savior to all who would believe.
The first chapter of the Bible stars God, (Elohim, the Creator, Supreme Ruler of all.
In the second and third chapters we fine The Lord God mentioned. He was there and a part of Creation. Man was created in their image. The Lord God called where are you?
When they hid after sin. God asked, ‘Who told you, you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of Knowledge?’ (Genisis 3:11)
So the Lord God sent them out of the Garden. God had the Angels guarding the Tree of Life.
In Chapter 4, the Lord comes into His own:
The Lord gave Eve the son she had been promised. (Genisis 4:1)
Cain brought an offering of crops he had harvested to the Lord, his brother Able brought a perfect lamb the Lord had given him.
The Lord rejected Cains offering, told him if he did well, it will be lifted up, if evil, sin is at the door. Ables’s blood was calling out from the ground and the Lord cursed Cain.
He would till the ground for no results, he would be a wanderer and fugitive on the earth.
Cain said the punishment was too great and left the presence of the Lord.
We find God giving Eve, Seth, and his son Enosh. Then people began to worship the Lord. (Genesis 4:25-26)
