What about God is “simple“?
Berkhof explains this pretty well I think.
Divine simplicity means he cannot and is not divided.
So for example, he transcends time. That means his Being is not divided into past, present and future.
Hear O Israel…
shmaa — it’s fun to say, and fun to spell!
Shama Yisrayel, Yahweh Elohaynu, Yahweh echad.
Shama: imperatival form of “to hear”. “Listen” might be a better translation.
Yahweh: The covenantal name of God.
Elohaynu: our God. Elohim is God, but with this -nu ending, it means our God. (The “ay” means it’s in construct, for you who are paying attention.)
Listen Israel Yahweh our God Yahweh one.
Someone’s been studying Hebrew!
I just thought you’d find it…fun to say. 🙂
The two Wittnesses opened the Seal of the Covenant and the Lord answered: “My Beloved Son.. I hear Your Voice”. A mighty and terrible Tornado swept the Land of Israel. “The Unholy, who do not serve, will perish”. Only Truth itself can withstand the holy Light. “Father.. I am Your Son”
That was cryptic.
