    JEHOSHUA-MATTHEW 3:15 - JESUS -JOSHUA- GOD SAVES
    This is the Greek form of the Hebrew name Joshua, which was originally Hoshea (Num_13:8, Num_13:16), but changed by Moses into Jehoshua (Num_13:16; 1Ch_7:27), or Joshua. After the Exile it assumed the form Jeshua, whence the Greek form JESUS. It was given to our Lord to denote the object of his mission, to save (Mat_1:21). ( COURTESY EASTON BIBLE DICTIONARY)


    ELOI- MARK 15:34- MY GOD
    ABBA- MARK 14:36- FATHER
    EMMANUEL-
    MATTHEW 1:23- GOD WITH US
     
  2. Of course we should not forget the personal name of God, which Bible scholars call the tetragrammaton.

    From the preface of the New International Version:

    In regard to the divine name YHWH, commonly referred to as the Tetragrammaton, the translators adopted the device used in most English versions of rendering that name as "LORD" in capital letters to distinguish it from Adonai, another Hebrew word rendered "Lord," for which small letters are used. Wherever the two names stand together in the Old Testament as a compound name of God, they are rendered "Sovereign LORD."

    Praise be YHWH!
     
  3. Hey Dusty,

    Thanks for posting this. I printed for a later study. Hope you don't mind

    Really appreciate it

    Thanks,

  4. No Problem cause some one sent it to me . I have them printed too . It's a great resource to keep in your Bible.
     
  5. Y = י Yodh, pronounced "Ya"
    H = ה He, pronounced "hey"
    W= ו Waw, placeholder.
    H = ה He, pronounced "hey"
    Pronounced, Yahweh, or pronounced: Elohim or Adonai, depending on the placement of the vowel points.

    Clear as mud?

    This is one of the reasons learning Hebrew is fun and exciting!! :D

    Is that right Pastor Gary? :) :confused:
     
  6. It's probably better than arabic ...... He he :)
     
  7. Ah HA HA :eek: :p

    Aramaic, Arabic, Hebrew,
    I think the only language more difficult would be...English.


    Why doesn't "One" start with a Doubleyou?

     

  8. That is too funny and so true . No wonder people from other countries say Engish is such a hard language.
     
  9. Strictly speaking the original pronunciation of the tetragrammaton was lost.

    From the preface of the New Revised Standard Version:

    While it is almost if not quite certain that the Name was originally pronounced "Yahweh," this pronunciation was not indicated when the Masoretes added vowel sounds to the consonantal Hebrew text. To the four consonants YHWH of the Name, which had come to be regarded as too sacred to be pronounced, they attached vowel signs indicating that in its place should be read the Hebrew word Adonai meaning "Lord" (or Elohim meaning "God").

    The Jews value the name so much that they don't want to pronounce it.

    But since God has other names that we could use, so that's fine :)
     
  10. Let's talk about the names of Jesus:
    For example in Dutch:
    Licht van de Wereld: Light of the World
     
  11. Wonderbare Raadsman: Wonderful counseler
