how to tell the biblical story in a way that makes a difference

So what was the point of Paul making a very obvious allusion to Isaiah 45:23, in which “myself, I, my, me, me” refer on the one hand to “El” and on the other hand to “YHWH/Lord” vs.23 & 25), and then transferring the same words of v.23 to Jesus? If they do not transfer the same meaning, that this is El/YHWH/Kyrios (LXX) who is being described, what do they mean?

Maybe we should move on to the Hurtado extract I quoted in the next post, which is summing up the meaning of Son of Man in the collective review “Who is This Son of Man?”, including Mark 2:10.
