Does the God of the Bible have a Name?

 
 
Fri 3 Jun, 2016 05:33 am
"For even though there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth, just as there are many “gods” and many “lords,” there is actually to us one God, the Father, from whom all things are and we for him; and there is one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things are and we through him." (1 Corinthians 8:2-6)

What is the Name of that one God?

Harold in this case is not a name, but means hallowed, sacred

@saab,
That men may know that you, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, are the most high over all the earth. Pslams 83:18 KJV

@BroRando,
I think it's "Jimmy". Right? Or am I thinking of someone else?

The use of the name Jehovah was widespread during colonial times. I did not realize the extent until I saw the movie April Morning. Thanks to the producers for maintaining historical authenticity.

It seems the idea that God may have a personal name has fallen from popularity. . . . . . . . . .

Good movie, BTW. Tommy Lee Jones. . .

The "original" bible was scripted in Hebrew, which has no letter "J", so both Jesus and Jehovah are anglicized versions of Yahweh.

And Yahweh, as any biblical scholar can tell you, came down from the stars with many other "gods" to mate with the local wildlife.

@Builder,
Right.
No one knows how the name is pronounced. Should that prevent us from using it?

Nah.
It's just that the movie was produced in English.

Try your luck. In the greater scheme of things, we are all gods.

He got pissed off at Moses for even asking. What's in a name anyway? Does a spirit have vocal cords?

So, why do you fixate on an Anglophone name?
