This is the final segment of bible study on the names for our triune God with more familiar names used by the Hebrews and known to us today. They are known to some as the “Jehovah Titles for God” or “Old Testament Names for God”. I will be using some of the references from H. L. Wilmington’s Book of Bible Lists.
As I mentioned earlier it is important to know the meanings attributed to a name or names before we employ them and name a place, a ministry or building. I truly hope that this series of study has caused awareness for things of God in all areas of our lives.
