Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 124

What’s in a Name?

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

How important is a name? We all have one. And even if a person was born without one, God would know what it was. Even God has a name. In fact, we know him by various names, all for a purpose. In the Bible, the phrase “The Lord” is used over 6,000 times. I haven’t looked at each one yet, but in almost every case that phrase covers over something extremely important. Why didn’t the Bible translators just use the name the Jewish writers put there for God? It would clear up confusion and make God all the more personal. “The Lord,” my friend, is actually Jehovah. Imagine that.
