God's Complex Identity
If you walk into a crowded room and start asking people what they think about God, you’ll get all kinds of answers based on people’s religious or non-religious beliefs. If you talk to someone who respects the Bible, you’ll likely hear about one all-powerful deity, the big guy upstairs who created and watches over us all. But what does the word “god” actually mean in the Bible? Well, it’s complex. First of all, the spiritual being that the Bible calls God is transcendent and the author of all reality as we know it. Any knowledge that we have about such a being will always be limited and partial because a Creator by definition is above and beyond that which is created. But the story of the Bible also describes a God who wants to connect with his creation in a genuine partnership to reveal the divine purpose and plan. And so when God appears to people in the Bible, it’s both understandable to them (people can see, hear, and interact with God as a person), but it also breaks their categories at the same time. It’s not just that understanding God is complex; it turns out that this God himself is also extremely complex. https://thebibleproject.com/explore/god/
