Reformation Jubilee - Martin Luther also used this term for God / Over 1000 years old / Contained in many quotations from the Bible

Don't forget the name Jehovah

A lot is being written about Luther in the well-known press these days, and in particular his various translations of the Bible are mentioned. Unfortunately, one particular point is missing, namely that Martin Luther used the name of God Jehovah and drew attention to it.

For Jehovah's Witnesses, their God Jehovah is everything. They have given themselves unreservedly to this God and want to contribute to the sanctification of Jehovah's name. Aside from the fact that the major churches and most Christian denominations do not use the name of God at all - except in footnotes in some Bible translations, nor do they make God's name known - we can point to well-documented testimonies that the name Jehovah does not first appear was needed in the 21st century. As anyone can read in their Bible at Romans 3:29, Jehovah is not only the God of the Jews, but the God of all men. In the German-speaking world, Jehovah is the traditional pronunciation of God's name, indeed the demonstrably most common form.

In 1270, the Catholic monk Raimundus Martini used this name in his book "Pugio Fidei" (Dagger of Faith). In the meantime, research has been able to determine that the German pronunciation Jehovah dates back to the year 1000. The well-known Benedictine monk, theologian, and head of the monastery school in St. Gallen/Switzerland, Labeo Notker (950 - 1022), translated numerous works from Latin into German, including the Psalms. Already in the year 1000 AD he used the name of God in Latin Iehovae, but also the German pronunciation Jehovah.

Yes, the oldest Hebrew manuscripts contain the name of God in the form of four consonants "YHWH", called the Tetragrammaton. Even if the orthodox Jews as well as the churches of Christendom want to keep silent about the divine name, they should search in the archives, study their own churches carefully, read old Bible translations and they would then always come across the divine name Jehovah. In the courtyard of the Heidelberg Castle, for example, the name Iehovae and "YHWH" are engraved on a stone tablet on the castle. The castle was first mentioned in a document in 1303, while the stone tablet was added in 1592 due to an extension. Also at the "Hotel Ritter" in Heidelberg one reads the name Jehovah on the parapet of the central axis in gold letters. This Renaissance building was built in 1592. In the "Hymnal for the Evangelical Protestant Church of the Grand Duchy of Baden", Karlsruhe 1882, by Oberkirchenrat von Stösser, song no. 12 reads: "I want to sing to you, Jehovah!" Song No. 46 reads: "Jehovah, Jehovah, Jehovah to your name be glory, power and glory". In the original text of Holy Scripture or the Bible, the divine name "YHWH" or "YHWH" or "JHVH" occurs in 7,216 places and is vocabulized as Jehovah. What did Jesus say about his father's name? Jesus Christ, the Son of God, says the following in Matthew 6:9: "Our Father which is in heaven. Hallowed be thy name!" In the Bible book of Ezekiel alone, according to the Brockhaus translation, the statement occurs 67 times: "And they will know that I am Jehovah!" As the Bible clearly shows, there comes a time when all must recognize and truly perceive that God has a name: "And I will sanctify my great name, which is profaned among the nations. And the nations will know that I am Jehovah , says the Lord Jehovah, when I sanctify myself before their eyes. I, Jehovah, have spoken and will do it!" - Ezekiel 36:22, 23, 36 Brockhaus Translation 1871 - Sanctification of the divine name Jehovah is therefore of the utmost importance. To enable everyone to do so, the Bible, the written Word of God, and God's name, Jehovah, have been made known throughout the earth. Luther did this too. profaned among the nations. And the nations will know that I am Jehovah, says the Lord Jehovah, when I sanctify myself before their eyes. I, Jehovah, have spoken and will do it!" - Ezekiel 36:22, 23, 36 Brockhaus Translation 1871 - So sanctification of the divine name Jehovah is of the utmost importance. To enable everyone to do this, the Bible, the Written Word of God and God's name Jehovah made known throughout the earth, as did Luther. profaned among the nations. And the nations will know that I am Jehovah, says the Lord Jehovah, when I sanctify myself before their eyes. I, Jehovah, have spoken and will do it!" - Ezekiel 36:22, 23, 36 Brockhaus Translation 1871 - So sanctification of the divine name Jehovah is of the utmost importance. To enable everyone to do this, the Bible, the Written Word of God and God's name Jehovah made known throughout the earth, as did Luther. the written word of God and God's name Jehovah made known throughout the earth. Luther did this too. the written word of God and God's name Jehovah made known throughout the earth. Luther did this too.
