“Righteous Father, even the 👉world didn’t know you, but I’ve known you, and these believers know that you sent me. 👉I’ve made YOUR NAME known to them 👈and will continue to make it known so that your love for me will be in them, and I myself will be in them.” John 17:25-26 CEB
Just would like to know how anyone will answer the questions below in relation to the above verse.
- Assuming the name which Christ made known above means authority, does that mean that before Christ came, the world which includes Jews since they are in the world didn’t really know the Father’s authority thus, the Christ made known it to them? If so, whose authority was it that Israel was following before the Christ came? This question also apply if the name to you means glory or character, it has the same thought.
- If the name means character to you, what are the characters of the Father that the Christ made known to them that the world did not know yet before the Christ came?
- If the name above that Christ made known is really a name literally, why must Christ still need to make it known since they already knew the name of the Father way back when Moses receive it? Do you not think that it does not make sense for Christ to still made it known when they knew it already?
- If the name was theophoric which means, the name of the Son has the name of God in it. It means, they knew all along the name of the Father which would come back to my no. 3 questions?
- If it was a name literally, what then is the name of the Father’s made known by Christ that was not known to the world to which, in this name the Father is glorified?
- How likely is it that Moses did not really receive the most preferred name of God since the bible is silent on what type of name was given to Moses?
- Is it possible that what Moses received was a name that introduces who would come to save mankind? (YHWH was established by most translators of the bible to be THE LORD). THE LORD which is actually a title name forever attached to the name Jesus?
