Discovering the Goodness of God in His Old Testament Names

Throughout the Old Testament, beginning at Creation and going all the way to the end in the writings of the Old Testament prophets, God has progressively revealed himself – shown us who he is – by giving himself some unique and descriptive names. Names like Elohim – God and Mighty Creator; El Shadday – God Almighty; El Roi – the God who sees me; Yahweh Rophe – The Lord who heals and Yahweh Shalom – The Lord is Peace.

The names of God found in the Old Testament reveal and confirm God's character -- his heart, his provision, his power and especially his goodness. Knowing God by name is important knowledge because one must know God before one can ever hope to enter into an intimate love relationship with God.

God's names were usually revealed at a significant turning point in a person's life, often at the point of their deepest need. The lessons in Knowing God by Name will cover the person or the event in the Old Testament where God's name is revealed and will also consider what the name of God means, both for those to whom it was given and also for us today.
