Who Is Jehovah?
Watchtower Answer: Jehovah is God the Heavenly Father.
Note: If you are a Jehovah’s Witness, could you give me even one Scripture where it actually says that Jehovah is the Heavenly Father or the Heavenly Father is Jehovah?
Bible Answer: Jehovah is the One who would be pierced. This prophecy was given in Zech 12:10 and sighted as being fulfilled in John 19:34-37, when Jesus Christ was pierced by the Roman soldier at Calvary. Zech 12:10 is quoted in John 19:37 as being fulfilled. If you examine the foot notes in the large NWT with references, you will see at the bottom of page 1169 “to me whom.” The textual symbols, “MVg” are explained on pages 10-11 and show you that “to me whom” is the correct rendering in all major manuscripts. Why is the “to me whom” important? Because it shows the person who is speaking is Jehovah. This agrees with the King James Version (KJV) that is quoted here: Zech 12:10 And I [Jehovah is speaking] will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me [Jehovah] whom they have pierced…
Jehovah is sold for thirty pieces of silver:
Zechariah 11:12-13 NWT
12 Then I said to them: “If it is good in YOUR eyes, give [me] my wages; but if not, refrain.” And they proceeded to pay my wages, thirty pieces of silver.
13 At that, Jehovah said to me: “Throw it to the treasury—the majestic value with which I have been valued from their standpoint.” Accordingly I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw it into the treasury at the house of Jehovah.
Jehovah is also identified in Zech 14:3-5 as the One whose feet will stand on the Mount of Olives “in that day” [Armageddon] and the One who returns with all the “Holy Ones” with Him. Then verse 9 states that Jehovah must become King over all the earth. The New Testament scriptures link the fulfillment to all these prophecies to none-other than Jesus Christ, which proves that the true identity of Jehovah is Jesus Christ.
Jehovah is the One who visited Abraham in Gen 18:1: And the LORD [Jehovah] appeared unto him [Abraham] in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;
Jehovah is the Father (Creator) of the Nation of Israel, but this verse, in its context, is not saying that Jehovah is God the Father: Isa 63:16 Doubtless thou art our father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: thou, O LORD [Jehovah], art our father, our redeemer; thy name is from everlasting.
