There is much to understand about the nature and character of God through the various names He is referred to throughout Scripture. Many of the names that God is called are names given to him by people trying to express the kind of God he is. The primus behind this series is to have a deeper understanding of who God is by looking at the meaning of the names, the stories that are connected to the name, and the importance for us today.


Class Description: A study in the names of God, why his people call Him these names, and what it means for us today.
