It is remarkable that in the first two chapters of Exodus the expression "the Lord” is not once used. There only "God" is found; cp. the last three verses of chapter 2, where "God" is used five times in quick succession. Due to this notable lack of "the Lord" and the predominance of "God" in Genesis and the first two chapters of Exodus, critics have devised the theory of two authors, the Elohist and the Jahvist, the former in his record using the expression Elohim and the latter Jahweh. However, that is only the rationalistic point of view. In comparison with the Biblical view, we might say it is absolutely ridiculous. There is a remarkable reason for the disclosure of Jahweh just at the time given. It is with this in mind that we wish to delve more deeply into the meaning of the name Jahweh and His manifestation as such just in this epoch of Israel's history.
