Truth Nuggets 4 Part 1 ”What‘s Your Name?”
This podcast is broken into two separate parts. Part 1 sets up the historical context and part 2 applies it to a special verse about Jesus.
The name of God is so special and so holy (kadosh קדוש) - meaning set apart, special, distinct. The rabbis in Jesus' day and even before even made up a new law - don't say God's name so you won't break the commandment that says do not take HIS name in vain. Therefore, in Jesus' day the tetragrammaton, yud hay vav hay יהוה, was not said. Other words were substituted like Adonai meaning ""Lord" or HaShem meaning "the Name." So one might say God's name, יהוה, I pronounce it "Yah Vay," is a name so above other names, so beyond other names, separate and set apart or kadosh קדוש - God even says this about His name.
This is the historical context we need to understand when we read the New Testament. Religious Jews who followed Jesus as Lord, as Savior, as God, knew this. It was part of their everyday culture. Thus, the verses Phil 2:5-11 take on a whole new meaning. We then ask Jesus, "What is your name? What is your REAL name?"
