Jehovah, the Word of the Old Testament, became flesh in the person of Jesus. However, his office was the same as it was in the Old Testament, namely to give an exact account of what the invisible, unknown, Creator God, his heavenly Father told him to say and to do. Jesus came to earth to reveal the existence of this invisible God, and to glorify him by his words and deeds. From that perspective, John's gospel could even be considered the first revelation given to John (the book of Revelation, then, would be second).
Most of what Jesus taught about the invisible God of heaven was not understood at the time, not even by his closest disciples. Still, he persisted in his ministry because he knew that when holy spirit dwelt upon each person, his disciples would then understand the mysteries he had been divulging to them. For example, after the coming of the holy spirit, the disciples realized that Jesus was not only the Messiah, but also Jehovah, himself, the God of Israel.
