There are different names for God in our Bibles: LORD, Yahveh, Jehovah, Adonai, Elohim. Which was first? Are they all the same? Which is more personal, and how did the early community of faith understand God's name?
This two-session study begins by considering the differences between Psalms 14 and 53. The two psalms are almost identical except for the different names they use for God. This leads to a discussion of how God made God's name known and what that name means. The first session discusses how God's revealing the name Yahveh was an attempt to be known personally with people. We see a God who desires relationship with us.
The second session explains the various other names that are used for God throughout the Bible, giving us a wider understanding of how God works and is understood. The participants should also discover the significance these names can add to their own expressions of faith in God.
