The Name of God with Nehemia Gordon (Open Door Series – Part 3)

In Part 3 of the Open Door Series, Nehemia Gordon explains how the name of God, sacred to both Jews and Christians, has become hidden by time and tradition. Beginning with Roman persecution forbidding Jews to speak the name through rabbinical adaptations, translation errors and other misunderstandings, the one and only name of the Lord was superseded over time by titles—like “El Shaddai,” or “Adonai”. As the exiles of Israel and the others joined with them to return to the Promised Land, the name of the Lord Yehovah is again being sanctified and exalted.

  1. This standing preacher (NG) has more karizma than most english speaking Christians with a degree in…what ever it might be.

  2. Hey, I’m not trying to win anything….just enjoy the process of listening carefully to these videos and focusing by taking notes on the content. Hope my notes are helpful.

    In Part 3 of the Open Door Series, Nehemiah Gordon explains how the name that Jews and Christians are commanded to hallow and sanctify became lost and even forbidden through the centuries. Due to Roman bans and persecutions, rabbinical adaptations, translation errors and other misunderstandings, the one and only name of the Lord was summarily replaced with titles—like “El Shaddai,” or “Adonai”. As the exiles of Israel and the others joined with them return to the land, the name of the Lord Yehovah will again be sanctified and exalted.

    Key Words: “Name of the Lord”, “YHWH”, “Restoration of Israel”, “Names and titles of God”, “diaspora”, “Yehovah”

  3. Don’t these verses allow for ‘foreigners / Gentiles / pagans’ to join Biblical Israel?:

    “Also the sons of the foreigner who join themselves to the LORD, to serve Him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be His servants – everyone who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, and holds fast My Covenant”. (Isaiah 56:6)

    Numbers 15:15 As for the congregation, there shall be one statute both for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you, a statute for ever throughout your generations; as ye are, so shall the stranger be before the LORD.
    Numbers 15:16 One law and one ordinance shall be both for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you.

    And can’t this include women too?
