This morning, while do some research on a non-related topic, I came across an interesting article posted last week on the Christianity Today website concerning the recent ban of the use of “Yahweh”, by the Vatican, in all liturgical uses (CT article HERE; Vatican ruling HERE).
When the Vatican release (English translation), via Zenit, originally appeared on 08-19-08, it precipitated a considerable amount of cyberspace discussion (GO HERE for some examples).
Now, as a former 4th generation Jehovah’s Witness, I think one could expect that yours truly has experienced a bit of consternation over this Vatican ruling; as such, I would like to ask a couple questions:
Do you agree or disagree with the Vatican’s ruling?
Do you believe that Jesus and/or His apostles pronounced the Tetragrammaton when it appeared in the passages they cited from the OT?
Grace and peace,
