“I think you are going to have to provide stronger grounds than you have so far done for saying that Jesus was appointed by YHWH as a human delegate to execute these functions, and not in fact part of the divine identity of YHWH himself.”

On the contrary, it’s divine identity that must be established, a term invented by Bauckham (supported w/ slight variance by Wright) to try in earnest to link the HC concepts and language of the creeds with the NT texts. It’s precisely the NT texts that undoubtedly teach that Jesus was appointed as a human delegate to execute YHWH functions, whatever else he was.
