  1. Song of Solomon 2:1 “I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.”

    Some days, just hearing His name makes things feel a little lighter. 🙂

  2. What a wonderful way to start the week–reflecting on who He is, recognizing that as He is, so are we in this world.

    Thanks so much for the reminder, Bryan.

      1. Good grief, how did I miss this one? Are you sure you didn’t just add this? 😉
        Ah, yes, the old Hebrews quote. Forgot this one.
        I’ve always felt this little ditty a bit ambiguous, haven’t you?
        God calling his son God. I mea, it sounds as if he was addressing another god.
        Bit schizo to my mind.
        It doesn’t help the cause that the ‘he’ in he saith is not with a capital ‘H’
        Still, who knows what your god was thinking, right?

        1. Christ is described by the Greek word Theos (God) in other NT passages, I could have just as well used: John 1:1-3; 1:18; 20:28; Rom. 9:5; Titus 2:13; 2 Pet. 1:1; 1 John 5:20

          1. Well referencing that bit from Titus is stretching it a bit. It says God AND(my emphasis)our Saviour Jesus Christ, Clearly the wiriter is referring to two seperate beings.
            What is this? Convince the atheist by hook or by crook, or getting all those wannabe reborn christians racing for their KJV?

            1. As always, you have my motives down pat. You can debate a Greek scholar if you wish:

              Various arguments have been used in an attempt to get around the fact this is a clear affirmation of the deity of Christ, but the same point of grammar (the Granville Sharp rule) that shows “the blessed hope and glorious appearing” are one and the same event applies here as well. That only one article governs the two nouns, God and Savior, shows us only one person is in view, namely, our great God and Savior who is Jesus Christ. This verse is very precise and is a clear example of the grammatical rule discussed in footnote above.136 Further, nowhere in the New Testament is the term “appearing” or epiphany, used with reference to God the Father nor is He portrayed as coming with the Lord Jesus at the time of Christ’s return.

  3. Bryan, thanks for another great homeschooling resource! I read this off to thr tribe and explained to them that just as their parents have names for them that are terms of endearment, God has them for Jesus! What a fun and unplanned lesson!

  4. I think this one’s getting printed and put up on the cube wall…
    The worship leader at my church this weekend said something like, “God wants to be your friend,” and I thought, “Wait…I don’t remember reading that anywhere.” Do you think that this “God wants to be your friend” stuff is a dangerous oversimplification of the Gospel?

      1. It could be dangerous; kinda like stressing ONLY God is love without a word to His holiness or justice. Jesus calls his immediate disciples his “friends” in Luke 12:4, and also He is the “Friend of Sinners” (Matthew 11:9). It’s a good thing to stress, we just can’t do it to the neglect of His many other wonderful attributes.
        Peace and grace brother!

  5. I love posts like this! In fact, this is what we’re studying in Sunday School. Thanks for a great opening idea/small group study! Sandy

  6. was JUST thinking about this last night! TOo crazy 🙂 God’s so good. Being in touch with His timing is a thing of beauty. Thank you, YHWH and Yeshua!!

  7. I love John 14:6 “I am the Truth, the Way and the Life.”

    What about the names, Jehovah Jireh (The Lord Provides) or Jehovah Nissi (The Lord Is My Banner)???

    Yahweh is another name, but I learned that it means “I AM”.
