Depth Podcast Episode 121: The Names of God — Melissa Spoelstra

Listen now:

Have you ever studied the names of God in the Bible? Have you ever looked at Yahweh, Elohim, Jehovah Jireh, or El Shaddai and wondered what they meant?

I am so excited to have Melissa Spoelstra on the podcast this week to talk about her Bible Study, *The Names of God: His Character Revealed. I love that as we study the names of God in the Bible, it reveals God’s character.  Listen to what Melissa says, “One of the ways God makes Himself known to us is through His names in Scripture. While our names help identify and distinguish us, God’s names go a step further: they reveal God to us. Studying God’s names helps us grow in our understanding of His character.” It is going to give us a more complete view of God as we learned these names. I was fascinated with the study and learned so much. Melissa is full of wisdom and truth.

Also, I am so excited for someone to win a copy of Melissa’s Bible Study: *The Names of God. All the details of the book giveaway are on my website at or you can click this direct link:
