Click here for previous session Just as Arab Christians identify God as “Allah,” and just as the Bible employs ther royalplural both in pronouns and in the proper name Elohim, Western Christians can  adopt the same practice without compromising their creed. But faith need not depend on such issues, when there remains a more relevant point to ponder: Regardless of His name, how does God command mankind to understand Him? Understanding of God Those who agree with us may not be right, but we admire their astuteness. —Cullen Hightower   The Jewish understanding of God is relatively concrete, despite the vast differences between Orthodox, Conservative, Reform and Hasidic Judaism in other matters. Throughout Judaism, the One­ness of God remains the primary attribute of the Creator, followed by many others, including justice, love, mercy, omniscience, omnipresence, omnipotence, sovereignty, truth, wisdom, self­existence, goodness,…

Click​ here for previous session            God’s Name and the Royal Plural You see things; and you say “Why?” But I dream things that never were; and I say “Why not?”—George Bernard Shaw, Back to Methuselah No discussion of God’s name is complete without explaining the royal plural. This is a linguistic concept foreign to most native English speakers, but not to the English language. As recently as the seventeenth century, the word thou was applied to commoners while the word you, the Old English plural of respect, was reserved for royalty and the social elite. Hence “your Highness” and “your Lordship,” rather than “thou Highness” or “thou Lordship.” Hence also Queen Victoria’s “We are not amused”…
