To the Jews, there was no mistaking whom Jesus claimed to be.

And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it. And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there.

In this opening passage of the book of Hebrews the clear implication is that the Father is the moving force behind the whole Old Testament. In context, verse 2 interprets verse 1.
