YHWH as HWHY: a Bi-gendered Deity for Jews, Christians and Muslims

Llegit aquesta mateixa tarda amb molt d’interès:

“The four-Hebrew-letter name of God, which scholars refer to as the Tetragrammaton, YHWH, was probably not pronounced “Jehovah” or “Yahweh,” as some have guessed. The Israelite priests would have read the letters in reverse as Hu/Hi — in other words, the hidden name of God was Hebrew for “He/She.” Counter to everything we grew up believing, the God of Israel — the God of the three monotheistic, Abrahamic religions to which fully half the people on the planet today belong — was understood by its earliest worshipers to be a dual-gendered deity.”

By contrast, the header image, by Michelangelo Buonarroti, on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, symbolizes very well our classical biased view of the God from The Bible as an elderly and very virile man.
