    What did you think of it, anon? Have you read the interpretations of Christ in the old testament? The Angel of the Lord that Abraham speaks to is Christ

      I learned that God created the world. I learned that God sanctified the seventh day because he created the world in six days and rested on the seventh. I learned that God made man out of dust and created one woman out of man to be man's helpmate. I learned that man learned good and evil through disobedience of God and by deception from woman who was deceived by the serpent. I learned that Adam and Eve were kicked out of Eden for their disobedience. I learned that Cain sinned by slaying his brother Abel because he was jealous that God respected Abel's sacrifice of animals and not Cain's sacrifice of harvest. I learned that Cain was marked for protection and sent to the land of Nod, where he created the first city and his descendants made a lot of advancements in music and metallurgy but were sinners. I learned that mankind became more wicked so God destroyed mankind but spared Noah, his sons, and their wives because they were righteous. I learned that mankind must not eat blood. I learned that God will not again destroy mankind and the rainbow is a token of that covenant. I learned that the sons of Ham will serve the house of Shem because he witnessed his father's nakedness and did not cover him. I learned that mankind was one and God confused their tongues to restrain them and their wickedness. I learned that God blessed Abram of Shem's line and told him he would make him a great nation. He is blessed and those who curse him are cursed but those who bless him are blessed. I learned that God cursed Pharaoh for trying to take Sarai as his wife. I learned that Abram's servants quarreled with servants of Lot so he separated from Lot and let him choose where he would prefer to stay. Lot chose Jordan and Abram went to Canaan. I learned that God would give the land of Canaan to Abram's descendants.

        Let me correct myself: Noah's family was spared because of Noah's righteousness, not their own. Also I left out the commandment to all animals, and men, and the family of Noah to be fruitful and multiply. And to the family of Adam and Noah to have dominion over the plants and animals. But Adam was only permitted to eat from herbs but Noah's line is allowed to eat meat but not the blood.

          That's why I said "Excepting the prophecies".
          Not the entire OT, only the books of Isaiah, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, and Daniel.

            >We know that no man has ever seen the face of the father for if we were to see it we would die instantly. therefore in all instances where God appears to people in the old testament, it can be no other than pre-incarnate Christ. This is also consistent with what the early church taught.
            In revelations, we learn what the throne of The Father looks like. And it's exactly as the throne in Ezekiel. So what Ezekiel saw can't be Jesus Christ.

            Oh my bad.

            in Genesis 16 we read of the flight of Hagar from Sarai, and of how the mal’ak Yahweh found her by a spring in the wilderness (verse 7). The messenger told her to return to her mistress and submit to her. But then the messenger said to her further, “Behold, you are with child and you shall bear a son and you shall call his name Ishmael”
            “Then she called the name of Yahweh who spoke to her, ‘El-roi’ [i.e. the God who sees], for she said ‘Have I even remained alive here after seeing Him?’”

            We know that no man has ever seen the face of the father for if we were to see it we would die instantly. therefore in all instances where God appears to people in the old testament, it can be no other than pre-incarnate Christ. This is also consistent with what the early church taught.

            Read these:

            Ezekiel and John saw him directly though. Jacob too unless you take it metaphorally.

          Furthermore we can also look at the Gospel of John
          IN THE BEGINNING was the word
          and the word was with God
          and the word WAS God
          Doesnt get any simpler than that

            No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father
            These are Christs own words in John 6, so you probably interpreted it wrong, and should re-examine it in a trinitarian lense
            In Daniel I also recall that he mentions throne(s), as in more than one in Daniel 7
            Also understand that in all of these OT verses properly translated they say they see "God". well, we know that Christ is God. And if Christ says in John 5 "And the Father who sent Me, He has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time nor seen His form" then we can conclude that when people saw God in the OT they saw God (the Son) and not God (the Father)

      blame protestants for that, they really said "the curtains are just blue" to the church kek

        Protestants were nothing but a reaction to corruption. Had the Church been somewhat reputable it would not have lost all credability. Had it permitted wives and families for its Priesthood things would be different.

          I'm Orthodox so I agree, but the point is that literal interpretations of scripture is a protestant innovation

            And Protestantism is a failure of Catholicism. So too is Orthodoxy.
