Who is Jehovah In the Bible?

In the Jehovah Witness organization, Jehovah is thought to be the God the Father, and I’m sure plenty of Christians believe the same thing. It is easy to believe this because the bible speaks of God; then God sent His Son Jesus to the world. And in giving names, the name of the God in the Old Testament was known as Jah, Yahweh, and Jehovah among many glorious and precious names. It is quite easy to believe that the Father is Jehovah in the bible; but there is a wrinkle or two that should be pointed out. Closely examining the scriptures it is evident the common assumption, allusion, and theory of the Father being Jehovah is not true; and we’ll explain who Jehovah is in the bible by first shedding light on the confusion.

The confusion begins in the book of Exodus, where God appears to Moses and tells Moses that He never gave his fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Israel his name; but was only known as God Almighty to them (Exodus 6 v2-3). This identifies the God of the Old Testament by the name Jehovah; let’s take a look at something else that will produce confusion. In Exodus chapter 24, seventy elders of Israel went up along with Moses, Aaron, and Aaron’s two sons to have a brunch with the God of Israel, we learned is Jehovah (Exodus 24 v9-11). These seventy-four elders of Israel went up and sat before the Lord, ate, and they saw Him. Insomuch as to describe His attributes and features; He was a “body of heaven in His clearness.”

Why is this important? Because of what Jesus Christ told us in the New Testament; Jesus said in St. John chapter 6 verse 46 and also in St. John 1 verse 18. In those two separate references, Jesus the Christ tells us that no man has ever seen the Father at anytime, except Him the Son of Man who came from the Father. In St. John chapter 5 verse 37; Jesus tells us that we have never heard the Father’s voice, nor seen His shape at anytime. If we are to believe Jesus, which we must for salvation, how do we handle these statements? The average person who does not want to believe will dismiss the entire bible; do not do that; when anything is confusing or contradicting; pray for more understanding and the Father will give you understanding of the confusion in Jesus name.

Speaking of Jesus name; this is how we clear this thing up in a short 400 to 500 world article. Jesus told us that He did not come in His own name; but actually came in His Father’s name in St. John 5 verse 43. Many devil’s-advocates believe this is speaking of the fact that He came representing His Father, as if that is not clearly obvious. He was actually coming wearing the name of His Father; essentially Jesus was a junior. No different than a man who names His son after himself; the Father did the same thing with Jesus because He gave Jesus a name higher than any name, which is His own name (Philippians 2 v9-11).

In 1st Corinthians chapter 10 verses 1 through 4; we all learn that the God of the Old Testament was indeed Jesus Christ; however in the Old Testament, He wore His own name, Jehovah, Jah, Yahweh. Nevertheless, in the New Testament He came in His Father’s name and that is huge info-hub for anybody that has something against the name of Jesus or something against the God of the Old Testament. The next time someone ask you who is Jehovah in the Bible; you can answer them with this article and begin to edify your neighbor. God bless you and keep you this day and forever more, in Jesus name, and bless is our God Jesus who pours out understanding and knowledge to those who seek it…Amen.
