WHAT MANY BELIEVE
“We have gained no consensus as to whether we can even speak of ‘the’ name of God, and if so, what that name might be.” —Professor David Cunningham, Theological Studies.
THE TRUTH FROM THE BIBLE
God said: “I am Jehovah. That is my name.” (Isaiah 42:8) Jehovah is a Hebrew name that means “He Causes to Become.” —Genesis 2:4, footnote.
Jehovah wants us to use his name. “Call upon his name,” states the Bible. “Make known among the peoples his dealings. Make mention that his name is put on high.” —Isaiah 12:4.
Jesus used God’s name. In prayer, Jesus told Jehovah: “I have made your name known to them [Jesus’ disciples] and will make it known.” Why did Jesus make the divine name known to his disciples? He continued: “In order that the love with which you [God] loved me may be in them and I in union with them.” —John 17:26.
