In Rev 1:4, John describes God as "the one who is and who was and who is to come." His description grows out of the Jewish reflection on the meaning of the name YHWH, and in particular on the enigmatic words of Ex. 3:14 "I am who I am." This book traces the story of the name YHWH in the New Testament era.
