    No, he is not, and that's not my opinion.
    Let's see what Jesus said about him.
    In Numbers 21:6-9, the Isrealites asked for bread, and Jehova gave them serpents. Jesus rebukes this in Luke 11:11-13, and Revelation 13:13-15 describes the same thing, but as the beast's doings.
    In Hosea 13:16, Samaria shall become desolate, her infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their pregnant women ripped wide open.
    In John 4, Jesus must go through Samaria. Well, we know why right? To fulfill the prophesy of Hosea 13:16, of course.
    Absolutely not. Jesus said that it would be better for him if he had a millstone hanged around his neck and drowned in the sea, than to offend one of these little ones.
    That's pretty clear, bro.
    And by the way. Jehova lied to Moses about how the Hebrews went to Egypt. For the real truth, see Daniel 3. The book of Daniel contains the entire history of the Hebrews in allegory. The chapters that are about the events during Daniel's life.

    I'd go even further. God be it in the new OR the OLD testament is not depicted as "harsh" at all. His attitude to flooding the world or leveling of Sodom & Gomorrah is not harsh but corresponding & proportionate to the evil & harshness of human conduct. And even before God renders justice, paying each for his works, He very often if not always first expresses His patience with us, forbearance, forgiveness, mercy and only then if we continue ignoring Him, finely justice. Harsh? no! Gracefull
