As a Christian you must know God's name, the word Father is a noun not a name and the word God is also a noun not a name, both of them are English words and Jesus didn't speak in English nor He spoke in Greek. Christians must know God's name because the Jesus said in John 17:26 "And I have declared unto them thy name....." so, the question for Christians out there: What is your God's Name?

I see this as kind of an arbitrary question. The way I will respond is did you really know your parents' names when you were a lot younger? To you their names back then were mom and dad or mother and father. Even to this day I am sure you don't call them by their names because it is kind of disrespectful to do so. As far as your bible quote, That is really all it says and nothing more. If you were to name your child God then his name would be God so to say that God is not a name is just trying to pick at straws. While I will agree that it is not his official name, It is the understood nickname I guess, that has been given to him. Now to answer the actual question. When God spoke to Moses from the burning bush and told him to go to the Pharoahs in his name, Moses then asked who will he say sent him. God then replied "I am who I am, and you shall tell them that "I Am" sent me to you." Which is of course a translation of Yahweh.

I am not a Christian nor could ever be one, however I just had to make a comment on this discussion. When you are with God, there is something you are going to discover. No one's name is important. The relationship is much closer. Names are not needed.

To be closer to someone starts with knowing their names.

In the world we use names. Hello John, hello Mary, hello Frank. All are salutations for greetings. We can also use names to include what the person does or is about. Smith, as in black smith, Dances with Wolves, as one who associates with an animal wolf, Stands, Stands with Fist, as in one who stands up for them self. I am not really sure what the question means as Gordano as indicated but in John 17:26 the scripture tells us not just what a name is but what has been made known. Love.

Interesting...obviously you are not a christian or you would not have posted this. Christians and muslims do write the name of the Creator out on paper and the internet. Jews do not. Jews do not write the name of the Creator anywhere where it might be disrespected or destroyed. Instead they write the word Ha'Shem. "The Name". They only write out Ha'Shem's name in Prayer Books, the Torah, and the TANAKH. When these books become worn out, they are properly buried.

Exodus 6:2-3 King James Version (KJV) 2And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD: 3And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them. Psalm 83:18 King James Version (KJV) 18That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth. Isaiah 26:4 King James Version (KJV) 4Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength: In English, God's name is Jehovah! In every language it is pronounced differently.

"As a Christian you must know God's name" - why? The name is unimportant in any religion - it's just so other people know who you're referring to. It doesn't matter if Christians call their god "Yahweh", "Jehovah", "Father", "God", "Old Beardy" or even "Jim-Bob": as long as they know who they're talking to and they do it with respect, that's all that matters.

Yahweh. . And Jesus' true name in Hebrew is actually Yeshua. I can't remember why it was translated to Jesus..
