We get plenty of examples from the Bible where the Lord God appears as one who is called the Lord God, and it is clearly God the Son, even in the Old Testament. Now, he’s not human in the Old Testament, (the incarnation takes place in the New Testament) and yet this one who is Lord God—and yet comes near—is spoken of in the Bible.
Let me give you two examples…
There’s the famous story from Genesis chapter 32, where Jacob wrestles with God. We can be in no doubt about the fact that Jacob wrestled with someone, and that that someone he wrestled with was God. And if it was God who came down, else could it be, except God the Son, Jesus? In fact, Jacob renames the entire place where this wrestling match took place. He calls it Peniel because he says Peniel means “face of God” and he says “it’s because I saw God face to face and yet my life was spared”.
Another example is Daniel chapter 3, where Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego are told to worship the golden image and they say “no” (because they only worship one image, the image of the invisible God), and they’re thrown into the fiery-furnace as a punishment for their disobedience of that earthly authority, Nebuchadnezzar. And yet, as they are thrown into those flames, there is one who appears and he causes them not to be harmed by these flames. We’re told that even though three men were thrown into the fire, there are four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like the Son of God.
So, Jesus is the central figure of the Bible in that sense too, that he actually appears in the stories, the author steps into the stories and becomes the central character, as well as the one to whom the stories point to.
