A book of the names of the Lord accompanied by stunning photography showcasing the beauty of His creation and the natural world. Glorifying the names of Father, Son and Spirit. Holy, holy, holy is the Lord!
In historic times, and in the days when the books of the Bible were written, the names people were given often represented and revealed their character and nature. Much could be learned about someone’s character through their name. In the Bible, the Lord often changed someone’s name when that person’s character and identity had changed or become new. In the Old Testament, Abram’s name (high father) was changed to Abraham (father of many) when God chose him (Genesis 17:5). Jacob (heel-catcher, supplanter) had his name changed to Israel (he who wrestles with God, he who prevails with God) after he wrestled with God (Genesis 32:22-31). In another example, the disciple first called Simon (he hears) later received the name Peter (a rock or stone) from Jesus (Matthew 16:17-19).
Now then, since names reveal character, how many more names are required to reveal and convey all the facets of the character of an infinite, eternal and holy God? Surely, even though we find many names for God in the Bible, His depth and richness revealed through those names is just the beginning of the revelation of His glory! Many names are used for the Lord, and many are needed; through each name we learn more about Him.
In this book, we journey through some of the names used for each Person of the holy Trinity; please keep in mind that this is not an exhaustive list of all His names found in the Bible. I don’t intend for the photos to be illustrative of the name, although some show a semblance; the photos are just for enjoyment.
