Trusting in the God of Abraham. Loving Law and Prophets. Believing Christ and his Apostles. Found fathers in Paul, Job, Moses, John. Adoring Daniel and Jeremiah. Trying to live in Christ (and for that reason hating foolish images and carven crosses and similar stuff).

comment Why does God say he only revealed his name, Yahweh, to Moses?
The way it is worded here (likely due to the - questionable? - reference to El-Shaddai) this text truly is problematic in his - again questionable - negating of YHWH as having been known to the patriarchs.

Ezekiel has El together with Shaddai ones. The translator of the LXX here simply writes (genitive) THEOU SHADDAI, employing a double Delta (of the Overpowering One), not the single one of breasts and fertility. The meaning may be close though.

comment Interpretation of Psalm 45:14
It could be his kingdom, the city of the king, Jerusalem, the bride (ekklesia?). In any understanding they should all become one in the wedding of the king's joy.

@Ron Maimon. I keep thinking about it. In Ruth the LXX renders Shaddai as ho Ikanos (the Sufficient One). In Job as Pantokrator (Ruler of All), Ikanos, and Kyrios (Lord). El-Shaddai is nowhere used for God except Gen and Ex these few instances where it is foreign and confusing everything. None of the Prophets, not a single Psalm speaks of El-Shaddai.

comment Why does God say he only revealed his name, Yahweh, to Moses?
@Frank Luke. This would mean that Israel, which died in the wilderness, experienced YHWH whereas Abraham who got a son at their old age, as good as sacrificed him and received him back, did not. But Israel did not enter into His rest. If the Name was primarily connected to promise of the land, why would it be spoken of even before the promise, in the Garden of Eden and before the flood?

comment Does Scripture imply that Judas knew that the high-priests and elders' goal was to have Jesus killed?
Thanks. Now it's clear to me. They may have even concealed their motives as far as persuasion could possibly go: That a lawful investigation would bring clarity into people's claim for him to be the Messiah. From the rebuke of Peter the betrayer could have known how mistaken and inimical human reasoning can be.

Can you clarify your last sentence to me? I would conclude otherwise: If he had known the outcome, why would he have killed himself after he first took the money?
