Just about everything related to divinity, or unknown spiritual encounters were translated as God throughout the OT. If you check out "Strong's" interpretation of the words most attributed to God, you will see "the eternal God" is only one description of many. This set the stage for multiple "gods" in the NT if you follow the rabbit, but if you take a look at the original Greek, it tells another story. Lessons from the OT tell me that not every time that it makes reference to God does it mean God Almighty, nor does it actually mean any god as per se.

 εν αρχη ην ο λογος και ο λογος ην προς τον θεον και θεος ην ο λογος.

λογος = The Word. "θεον" is the eternal God, and "θεος" is the "god" with God from the beginning, aka the Word.

It becomes confusing because people attribute "the beginning" to a God with no beginning. "In the beginning" has nothing to do with an eternal God. The beginning was a conscious action in the creation and development of ...the earth, our solar system?, maybe the entire universe, maybe farther, but "the Word" was created before THAT beginning, and could not be with God from a beginning that did not exist. The Word is mentioned often in Genesis as an entity capable of conveying God's directives. 

In the Revelation to John, Jesus says, I am the first and the last... Everlasting cannot be first nor last. Both terms are irrelevant to God. They can only apply to the Word, which indwelled the seed of Mary. It is a simple explanation as to how Jesus was able to speak as an infant, but does not make the Word a god, nor does it make Jesus a physical son of God.
