What are the different names of God and what do they mean? lets here what you think!


Shoot, I wrote a long post and then my computer crashed, so here is the abbreviated version.

At the burning bush, God told Moses his name was YHWH - ancient Hebrew did not include vowels and the proper pronunciation is unclear, this is often rendered as Yahweh or Jehovah - or "I am that I am" (or "I shall be what I shall be"). The meaning is that God is self-sufficient - He does not depend on anyone or anything, unlike all of creation, which depends on him.

Ancient Israelites were forbidden to use this name, so they substituted the title Adonai, or Lord. Other titles are also used throughout the Bible (e.g. El Shaddai, which means God Almighty).

Jesus calls God Abba, which means father in Aramaic, as he prayed. I've been told that this is a very familiar form of father, more like "daddy".

Jesus's name is a variant on Joshua, which means "God is our salvation" in Hebrew. He was given the title Christ, which means "Annointed one" in Greek. He also has a lot of other titles - wonderful, counselor, almighty God, Immanuel (God with us), etc.

The Holy Spirit is sometimes called the Paraclete, Greek for comforter, based on Jesus' words to his disciples that he was going to send "another comforter" after he left them.

God's name is "I am sent me to you." (That's what he told Moses).
