  1. Is the God of the Old Testament and the God of the New Testament the same god?

    Yes, of course it is the same, because the narratives of the Bible are consistent, connected by history, prophecy, and common meaning( although the handwriting of God seems to be different here and there). Moreover, the Bible itself says so. And about “handwriting”..You see, even in Hegel's philosophy, I read that law reflects the state of society.When the foundations of society are strong, it is lenient to deal with offenses. If a society's position is precarious, severe punishments are designed to strengthen its position..In other words, “wartime laws” oblige..Or strong illnesses need strong remedies…

  2. Yes, the same one. In the Bible, we see differences in His attitude to people, and this is due to the fact that the people He created are constantly developing, passing on experience from generation to generation.

    Similarly, people's relationships with their parents change.

    Just compare the ratio of 0-3 years of parents to children and 20-40 years of age of children.

    Most Bible readers don't understand this.

  3. No, they are not the same God. Moreover, the” god “of the Old Testament is not God at all, it is the devil under the name of Yahweh, the” god ” of the Old Testament is Satan. And the God of the New Testament is the Holy Trinity-the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Simply put, the Old Testament “god” is the devil, and the New Testament God is Jesus Christ.

  4. We can say that it is the same, but it manifests itself according to the perception and development of believers. I think that at different stages of human development, we needed different laws (restrictions), different interaction (feedback), and different access, so to speak, to the level of revelations. Much knowledge is dangerous when the knower is not yet ready.

  5. Malachi 3: 6 “For I am the Lord, and I do not change….” It follows that the God of the Old Testament and the New are one and the same. Isaiah 43: 10 says,”…There was no God before me, and there will be no God after me.”

    The God of the Old Testament is the Creator of all things visible and invisible, including the earth. Genesis 1: 1 says, ” In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Revelation 4: 11 ” You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory, honor, and power, for You created all things, and all things exist and were created according to Your will.”

    God created people out of love. He wanted to share the joy of life with his creations. Ephesians 4: 6 “There is one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in all.”

  6. Yes – one and the same. Then they said to Him, ” Who then are you? Jesus said to them, ” I am from the beginning, just as I say to you.”

    The Gospel of John 8: 25

  7. Yehoshua-Jesus believed in Jehovah, the God of the Old Testament (aka Sabaoth, Allah, and God the Father). The Trinity-as God-is formulated later and is not mentioned in the Gospels.
    There can be no exact answer, because God is not a proven fact, but a hypothesis, an object of faith, not reason.

  8. Yes, absolutely. Christ said of the Old Testament, ” I have not come to break it, but to fulfill it.” Also in the New Testament, God is repeatedly identified as ” the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”

  9. It depends from whose point of view. From the Jewish point of view, the New Testament is not worth the paper on which it is written, and from the Christian point of view, of course, it is the same. You can recall the symbol of faith:
    I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.
    And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all ages, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, uncreated, one being with the Father, through Whom all things were created…etc.
