YHWH is a Hebrew identify of God and the Lord made definite that this identify is rarely used in the Greek texts of the hot testomony simply because YHWH used to be changed with the recent testomony identify of God, Jesus. a few use the Hebrew identify of Yeshua for Jesus yet this note can't be present in the recent testomony in any respect. possibly humans use this identify Yeshua since it sounds great yet, it isn’t within the New testomony anywhere.
Jesus is the promised Messiah, undeniable and straightforward. As we are going to see inside of this ebook that an analogous names of God applied through the e-book of Isaiah are a similar names which are used to proclaim the identify of God, Jesus.
If you have got learn my prior e-book The Names of God you will have spotted that the Holy Trinity was once pointed out during the previous testomony and, within the New testomony the Holy Trinity is once more spelled out yet a bit in a different way but they're the same.
We will become aware of that God the daddy, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit can have their very own names yet they suggest a similar factor because the Greek Lexicons and different reference fabric so inform.
