Should God be called by only one Name?

Transcript of the video

Should God be called by only one name – Jehovah?

The Bible teaches that we can call God by many names.

Jesus taught his disciples that we can call God “Father”.

Matt 6:9 “You must pray, then, this way: “‘Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified.

While on the cross, Jesus addressed his Father as “Eli”, which means God. He did not call his Father “Jehovah” as JWs have insisted that this is the only name we can call God by.

Matt 27:46 About the ninth hour, Jesus called out with a loud voice, saying: “Eʹli, Eʹli, laʹma sa·bach·thaʹni?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

The Psalmist David calls God by both Jehovah and Lord (Hebrew “adonay”) interchangeably.

Ps 86:1-3 Incline your ear, O Jehovah (Hebrew word “yehovah”), and answer me, For I am afflicted and poor. 2  Guard my life, for I am loyal. Save your servant who is trusting in you, For you are my God. 3  Show me favor, O Jehovah (wrongly translated as “Jehovah” in New World Translation, original Hebrew word is “adonay” or “Lord”, not “yehovah”), For I call to you all day long.
