Greetings in the name of Jesus: If i may give a little Hebrew perspective to the word Jehovah and name Jesus.; I only speak for clarification, not to demean others beliefs. Names are important, but faith and Jesus are what's paramount, in my opinion. If I may speak to the origin of Jehovah: which is not found, or used in any Hebrew text or in way today or at any time as to Hebrew, that is documented. The word Jehovah,is a redaction of a real Hebrew word " Yahweh". which word is a real Hebrew word and even used today in Israel. In fact the word Yahweh is a combination of two words, which are two of the most commonly used words in Hebrew... Ya and Weh pronounce Zay today..Yahzay... If I may quote the Scripture where term use of Yahweh originated. Exodus 3:13-15.> 13. " And Moses said unto God, Behold, when i come unto the Children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? 14. And God said unto Moses, I am that I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. ".. Yah and weh, combine to mean. " I am", if God himself used the term..Ya, Yo, and Ye are abbreviated terms for God..Example is the name Jesus, which in Hebrew is Joshuah...Which in Hebrew means "Gods salvation"..Yo = God, Shua as salvation... My point, is Hebrew speakers never have used the term "Yahweh" as a name for God, its only descriptive term. Let me give an example of the term Yahweh, or Yah Zay is spoken today. God says Yahweh, which tranlates as " I AM"... but if Moses went to the people of Israel and said... " Yahweh hath sent me" People would not hear of interpret " I AM" but from Moses the term Yahweh, then becomes "God Is" or " God exists". The Term Yah, Means God, but interpreted as " I " if God so so speaks it.. If a person uses the term Yah or yo or ye, as prefix to another term, it becomes God not I. Weh or Zee, is the most common verb in Hebrew, meaning ; " it is, Is it, Am" and a few other tenses.. The point here is that the term Yahweh, is a generic term which changes meaning depending on who and how the terms are used. And Jews, or Hebrews would never apply such a simplistic variable term for a Classical name for God. This term Yahweh, should again show that Gods name is secret unto the Jew Hebrew people. Which secret name for God is confirmed again later in Judges 13: 17-18. Which is why the people of Israel, are known in ancient times, as " The people with a God of no name". The Names used by Hebrews for God was Eloheem and Adoniah...God and Lord respectively. If I may suggest, the true name and Holy name of God is the name we use as our Lord.."Jesus" or in Hebrew " Yashua" ! I hope I did not confuse the issue for any one, by expressing the Hebrew interpretation on the word Yahweh. I pray my words will not offend, God bless all Christians in forum, and all those who use it.
