Study Jesus is the Adonay Lord in the OT

HYPOTHESIS: What does Adonay mean?

INTRODUCTION: This study looks at the difference between 'adown' and 'adonay'. See studies of 'adown' , where the Hebrew word means 'Lord' for all verses, where the word is found.

Notice the three Hebrew words which are related, according to Jeff Benner:-

The Hebrew word 'adonay' is on the bottom of the picture. (Strong's 136)

METHOD: All words in OT Hebrew studied. There is no New Testament occurance of Adonay in the Greek manuscripts.


The pictograph reads "The strong door secure over the nations (is) active". The word 'adonay' has the 'active hand' letter added to the word 'Lord' so suggests 'Active-Lord'. But there is no English word equivalent for this meaning.

CONCLUSION: The Hebrew word 'Adonay' means 'Active-Lord' and since there is no English equivalent, the word 'Adonay' is used instead. Adonay is always used for a heavenly Being, not even an angel, but a member of the Godhead. The member of the Godhead to whom Adonay is referenced is Lord Adonay Jesus.

PERSONAL APPLICATION: The meaning of Adonay is profound. It shows that Adonay is the Lord Adonay Jesus, who is not only 'adown' 'lord of lords' as some verses show, but 'Adonay' 'LORD of LORDS', as well. Lord Adonay Jesus is the messenger for Father-YHWH, and thus is known as Jesus-YHWH in the Old Testament. In some verses Lord Adonay Jesus is also referenced as Elohiym, which suggests the power of Father-YHWH flows via His Son, and they both become Saviours, Rocks of salvation and Strong Authorities who exist.

Here are some important verses proving the significance of Adonay:-

(3) Ge 18:3 And said , My Lord (Adonay) , if now I have found favour in thy sight , pass not away , I pray thee, from thy servant :
