A New Covenant Introduction worth reading:
While our other introduction pages are valuable, this introduction to the New Covenant, is significant and different. The fullness of the entire Inspired Word, revealed within this New Covenant, contains a deeper revelation worth review.
Removing The Exalted Name
As explained thoroughly within the Old Covenant Introduction, the systematic elimination of The Exalted Name, throughout the Old Covenant, occurred during the Babylonian captivity.
YEHOWAH and YEH (The Exalted Name(s) of Scripture) were removed from every ancient writing, two thousand years before Messiah was born.
Oral use of His Exalted Name was silenced at the same time.
Forgetting The Exalted Name:
At that time, therefore, only the High Priests and select Scribes knew the code used to decipher and vocalize The Exalted Name. That coded information, then, was passed from generation to generation.
Over time, though, even the elect of Yehudah (Judah) forgot the vowel points to the tetragrammaton (YHWH). In the forgetting, the Jewish scholars opened the door for the ancient Hebrew language Gentile scholars, to gain an understanding of, and for, The Exalted Name.
In their own study of the ancient writings, the Hebrew scholars allowed the Gentile scholars to oversee and overhear everything needed to understand and vocalize The Exalted Name. The work of those scholars, completed centuries ago, allows for this edition of Scripture.
By the time of Messiah, therefore, all reference to YEHOWAH and YEH were forgotten. Through their reaction to the Messiah, however, I believe that some of the Priests and leaders of Yehudah had some awareness; they had some inkling that He was relaying something substantial – within His Name. This is vital information…
The Exalted Name shining again:
The New Covenant reveals vital information in these matters, though, wherein the name given to Zachariyeh by Gabriel, in the Temple, for his yet unborn son with Elisabeth, was an anomaly for their time.
Translated today as John, and he is known as John the Baptist, his Hebrew name is Yehanan! Yehanan means: “YEHOWAH has been gracious”.
Another – Greater Name:
And then again, when Gabriel visited Mary, The Exalted Name given to her, for her Son, was an unknown Word to her as well.
By the reaction of the Hebrew leaders, however, it seems that the High Priests may have recognized the intent of His Name. And, in their limited understanding, it is possible, that their hatred of Him grew whenever His Name was mentioned.
Not knowing His Fullness though; not recognizing Him for Who He Was, every mention of His Name, in their eyes, appeared as blaspheme to The Exalted Name.
Who is this?
Yehoshua’s Exalted Name was erroneously, and possibly maliciously, changed to Iesus a few hundred years after His death, resurrection and ascension. Further degradation occurred when that name was somehow transliterated to Jesus. The final transliteration of His Name took place sometime around the thirteenth century. Iesus, by the way, was a Greek god; a nobody compared with Our Elohim…
My prayer for you, and for this work.
May you find The Exalted Name Bible™ edition of Scripture relevant, rewarding and worthwhile to your studies and faith walk.
Then, as you walk to the praise, honor and glory of Yehoshua ha Mashiach, may we all, once again, through Him, also lift-up The Exalted Name of YEHOWAH!
What does His Name mean?
The Messiah’s Name, YEHOSHUA, by the way, means, YEHOWAH’S DELIVERER!
Thank you for your patience and prayers!
