THE NAMES OF GOD

 

The Holy One of Israel has been given many names and titles. We in the English speaking lands tend to call Him by only a few, but there is a rich history of names that our Father has given Himself. I hope that seeing these various names will both enrich and bless you in His knowledge.

 

You may notice that the name Jehovah is not seen here. The name Jehovah is a poor translation of the Hebrew word translated YHWH in English, which is the most holy name for the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and of course Jesus, or Yeshua. The Hebrew Alefbet contains no letter "J" and proper names which we pronounce with a "J" really start with "Y" in the Old Covenant. For instance, Jerusalem is really Yerushalayim and Jesus is actually Yeshua. With that in mind, we now go to the list.
