Who is the most important person in the Hebrew Bible and why? Define important however you want to.
Adam because without him the ball would have never got rolling…
Moses. The Law, the Exodus, the Promised Land, etc.
But Adam ranks pretty high too I guess.
I’m thinking Abraham, the father of faith. Adam just got things screwed up but Abraham is at the start of God putting things right again.
God, depending on the definition of ‘person’. It wouldn’t have answers without God.
Steph, since it’s an opinion question you get to answer it how you want. Personally, though, I would consider God three persons. But you certainly won’t find that spelled out in any OT text.
In that case God the Father is the most important person in the OT who sometimes refers to himself in first person plural no doubt anticipating your trinity doctrine.
