  • JTetragrammaton break down the words.
    Terra means 4
    Gramm means letters
    Atom means Sun god


    Look up Jordan maxwell he is an educator on subject such as this.
  • Marci from Easley, ScJust a clarification of the previous comment: The Tetragrammaton was not the name of just "a Hebrew god", but was and is the name of the God of the Bible, Yahweh or Jehovah, whichever way one pronounces it in modern-day language. This name is included in thousands of Hebrew proper names, including that of Jesus Christ, Yeshua or Jehoshua, or again, whatever pronunciation it is given in current language, including the name Jesus. These names mean "Jah (or Yah) is Salvation (or Has Saved"), showing that Jesus and his parents viewed this God as more than a tribal god.
