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
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).'" (Ex 31:12-13)
Jesus makes clear to the Sadducees, who did not believe in resurrection, that there is a future life with 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)." (Matt 22:31-32)
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." (Mark 14:36)
