Bible Study The person of God in Christ

Can anyone find in Scripture where God made light, folly or was mediocre with the Gospel? Or at anytime was God nonchalant or not serious with The Word, or in His teachings? I could find no where in His ministry where he started out with a joke, or even jovial in His sermons......and He never minced words and spoke with authority. In His Spirit I find no frivolity or casualness of the Scriptures or His Sermons.. So, how can a Christian think less of the Scriptures and more of their opinions above the word? He can not...if He has His Spirit! The Times demand the pure word of God delivered by His warning but charitable Spirit.

The full name of our savior is "Lord Jesus Christ", The first is His "Divine" name; the second, His "human" name; the third is His "official title". He was always "The Lord" (kurios) Gk. (Heb. 1:10). In His incarnation as Babe in the manger at Bethlehem, He became Jesus. (Matt. 1:21; 2:1) He was born with Messianic rights through both parents as "Son of David" (Matt. 1:1; Luke 2:11). At His baptism with The Holy Spirit (Luke 3:21-22) He begins His ministry to Israel, "The Kingdom of the Heavens" as the "Christ or Messiah" (Matt. 4:17; 23).

All of the OT progressive names of God are merged in the name. "Lord Jesus Christ".
The Hebrew, Elohim, Jehovah, Adonai are all rendered "Lord" in the Greek NT. All the primary OT names of God are rendered in the NT Greek word (Kurios) Translated "Lord".

Compare (Matt. 1:23 with Isa. 7:14) (Matt. 4:7 with Deut. 6:16) (Mark 5:19 with Ps. 60:16 and Ps. 110:1 with Matt. 22:42-45). And the use of "Lord" for and by (John 13:13-14). Therefore Jesus is the direct ascription to Him, and assumption by Him, of the full essence of Deity. (Heb. 1:1-3) (Col. 2:9)
We can get deeper into the names and titles of God in OT that reveal His nature, Power / strength and attributes after this discussion.
