Looking at the Divine Name

Looking at the Divine Name July 5, 2017

My life is super hectic right now, what with transitioning into a new job and finishing final coursework. Unfortunately this means that my available time for reading and writing time is quite limited. Never fear though, for in times like these the fantastic videos from The Bible Project are available to fill in part of the summer writing (and time) slump!

In this video Tim and Jon look at the history of the Divine Name in the Hebrew Bible, “YHWH,” or “LORD” in English translations of the Bible. I’ve done some research on this topic in some of my classes and it is incredibly fascinating. The very language of the Divine Name communicates something about the nature of God. Soon, I will hopefully come to a place where I can resume a more regular output of writing. Until then, enjoy the video!
