QUESTION: I have heard that Jehovah is not the right name for God. Do you know why?
ANSWER: Yes, we know why. Jehovah is a name put together by Ecclesiastical teachers in 1030 A.D. The name of Yahweh is the only name of God and used way back in the days when Moses was writing the Pentateuch. In the days of the writing of the Book of Job almost 5000 B.C., the name was Yahweh. The time of Adam is 5400 B.C., for the year out of the Garden and up to the time of 1967 we are still on approximately the right date. There is not a years discrepancy in the present calendar plus or minus the four years and in all these things. So we are still less than one year out in our time. There may be shifts of calendars a matter of three months at the outside chance. The areas of Chronology will establish that Adam was 5400 years before Christ. The Alexandrian text was one of the most accurate of texts.
In the Scofield Bible he has so many footnotes that are rather interesting. But when he deals with chronology here in his concordance he tells you of this discrepancy for the time of Adam. He tells you that Usshurs Chronology of 4004 years is very much used because of its convenience but the most accurate chronology is the Alexandrian text and it has 5300+ years for Adam when he was driven out of the Garden of Eden, the other one listed here has 5400 B.C. years for Adam.
