but if you think you are all knowledgeable about theology, then answer me this, why do you think it is that you are so provoked and offended by Christ? i'll give you a hint, the answer should send shivers through your bones.
El means god .. not necessarily the canaanite God
el shaddai means the most high
yahweh reveals himself to the israelites in several moments in the torah
your logic doesnt make senseUff. I just linked you to a verse where he says he didn't by name, when he absolutely did in Genesis. The original verses didn't have Yahweh. I suggest you read the book "The Old Ones" on that particular issue. Mentioned in the first few pages.
your logic doesnt make sense
the torah was compiled throughout the centuries do you honestly believe that they forgot to add yahweh?
the story of judaism and christianity is a journey from chaos to order ... from moral impurity to purity
god reveals himself in stages
moreover yahweh isnt the name of god its a tetragrammaton of i am who i am
god or G-d is refered to by many names
Yahweh is not his name he said to moses "i am who i am" yhwh is a tetragrammatonThe Torah is compiled like a gypsy dress. Patched together and contradictory. It says Yahweh never made himself known to Abraham by name. And then says "Hey Abraham, it's me Yahweh" and other instances. Explain that. Were the Jews too blind to see this? Or is that an indication that they the references to God were jumbled together?
And no, Yahweh is a particular God. And El is a particular God. Based on undeniable Caananite history. There's no doubt or question about that.
I'm not interested in going down that silly route. It's like a Muslim telling me that "Allah" just stands for the generic God.
Yahweh is not his name he said to moses "i am who i am" yhwh is a tetragrammaton
El is a ancient semitic word for god just like adonai and baal
Yahweh apparently disagrees with you. Exodus 6:3 I appeared to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as El Shadday, but I didn’t make myself known to them by my name, Yahweh.
So Yahweh was his name. And not a tetragrammaton. Wowzy.
No Allah is not a word for God .. we use colloquially but it's not a wordSo is Allah. From this day forward, you will go to the Mosque and pray the Islamic way. Because Allah is your God. Okay?
They do, actually.
he is referred as LORD YHWH Adonai among other namesAnd are you seriously suggesting "Lord" is the name of God but Yahweh isn't?
Read the verse in Hebrew ffs.
Of course Christianity is rooted in paganism. Pagans wore clothes. Jesus also wore clothes. Pagans breathed air. Jesus also breathed air. Pagans ate bread. Jesus also ate bread. And, now, all Christians wear clothes, breath air, and eat bread. Except the heretics on keto.
