Because in real life, there are no motifs, no themes, no plot diagrams, no literary devices. Foreshadowing just happens to be one of those literary devices. That, to me (being a writer and all) just enforces that the Bible is a story, a BOOK! No more! Not Gods word because it is humans word. And people killing each other in the name of some God created by a humans book is a slander to the name of my true God.

Within the New Testament where does Yeshua refer to his father by the name Yahweh?
John 8:44 reads:
'You are of your father the devil and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him...for he is a liar and the father of it"
He was speaking to "jews" that served Yahweh the cult god. Its an accurate description of Yahweh. Yahweh was a murderer from the beginning and didn't abide in the truth. Could yeshua be referring to Yahweh here.
The Old Testament states that Yahweh was one of the sons of Elyon-Deuteronomy 32:8-9 (best to read this from something other than Masoretic because it was changed by them to cover up polytheism)
Avrahams god was El....the most high...Jacob's god was El...
hence the name Isra-EL...could it be that yeshua's Father was Elyon (The most high)?
It is not that i hate God or anything but like others have already said i dislike the fact that Religion can be a pressed issue not a choice.

I have to differ with you. God is the writer of the Bible.
