I am

This article is one in a series of studies on Jehovah - you are currently on the topic that is in bold:

The Hebrew word יהוה (English: Jehovah) means "the existing One"[1].

When Moses asked God his name, God replied: I AM THAT I AM [2]. The Name "I Am" (הוה) is the last three letters of the Hebrew word for "the existing One", and is the present tense of the Hebrew language.

In the New Testament, a great light appeared to Paul the Apostle, and a voice said: "I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest". Jesus also said of himself: "before Abraham was, I am."

Jehovah said: Scripture
