John Kerley (1966)

I met David Jon Hill in 1968, just before or after I graduated that year.  He was teaching the Advanced Theology class and gave us several subjects that we could write about for extra credit.  I think that I was still working in the Data Processing Dept at the time. One subject caught my attention, mainly because I thought that the ministers in WCG knew all about the Bible. The subject was the "Everlasting Father" in Isaiah 9:6. I didn't know where to look in the Bible for information about The everlasting Father.

Isa. 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

To this day I marvel at the wisdom of David Jon Hill.  All the commentaries on the Bible claim that this verse is referring to Jesus Christ. But Jesus was never a father and certainly not The mighty God. The Hebrew words for "mighty God" are also in Jeremiah 32:18 where a comma follows with "whose name is the LORD of Hosts." And the word LORD is YHVH in Hebrew.

David Jon Hill was writing his history and finished Part 1 and 2, before he died.  He never got to Part 3 and 4. Part 1 and 2 can be read on Ken Westby's website, www.godward.org. Search for "A Hill of An Experience Part 1" then same title Part 2 using google. Ken Westby has revised his website and doesn't show a Search Box on his website, but google can enter all his web pages.
