Throughout the Bible, God is called by many names which reflect an attribute or a relationship that illustrates
a character of His.
For example, God gives Himself a title that He wants the nation of Israel to remember Him by - Yahweh-Mekaddesh
(The Lord sanctifies).
The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, "But as for you, speak to the sons of Israel, saying,
'You shall surely observe My sabbaths; for this is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you
may know that I am the Lord (Yĕhovah) who sanctifies you (qadash).'"
Jesus makes clear to the Sadducees that there is a future life with the resurrection; when a Believer dies, he
continues to exist - God is the God of the living (Theos Zao).
But regarding the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by
God (theos): I am the God (theos) of Abraham, and the God (theos) of Isaac, and the God (theos) of Jacob'? He is
not the God (theos) of the dead but of the living (zaō)."
When facing His greatest challenge, Jesus calls upon His Father: Abba (Father).
And He was saying, "Abba (abba)! Father (patēr)! All things are possible
for You; remove this cup from Me; yet not what I will, but what You will."
