The name that God revealed to Moses in the theophany of the burning bush. 4. The Hebrew letters YHWH translated mean "I am who I am" or "I am who is". 5. The meaning of the name Jesus is 'YHWH is slavation.' 6. They reveal the relationship binding Jesus, the Incarnate Son of God, with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit.
