The Name

In this class, Ross enters into the discussion on the Name of the God of Israel. He traces his views of the name from his first awareness that God has a name. In this teaching Ross covers what we know, and what is based on speculation. What does the term “tetragrammaton” mean? What are the four letters? Can we know with any certainty how to pronounce the name? Can we know with any certainty if modern proposals reflect ancient realities? Were the letters pronounced as vowels, or do the Hebrew letters of the name represent consonants? How did the name Yahweh come to be accepted as a leading proposal for the pronunciation? Was the third letter of the name a “vav” or a “waw?” What is a theophory and how does this help us in determining what the pronunciation of the name was? This and more in the first of a series on The True God.
