The Father's Name

2013-01-23 8:50 AM | Daniel

In the first paper, in section 1, “The Father’s Name,” The Urantia Book says, “The First Source and Universe Center has never revealed himself by name, only by nature.”


But in 182: 1: 9, we are told,

182:1.9 The Master, during the course of this final prayer with his apostles, alluded to the fact that he had manifested the Father’s name to the world. And that is truly what he did by the revelation of God through his perfected life in the flesh. The Father in heaven had sought to reveal himself to Moses, but he could proceed no further than to cause it to be said, “I AM.” And when pressed for further revelation of himself, it was only disclosed, “I AM that I AM.” But when Jesus had finished his earth life, this name of the Father had been so revealed that the Master, who was the Father incarnate, could truly say:

  • I am the bread of life.
  • I am the living water.
  • I am the light of the world.
  • I am the desire of all ages.
  • I am the open door to eternal salvation.
  • I am the reality of endless life.
  • I am the good shepherd.
  • I am the pathway of infinite perfection.
  • I am the resurrection and the life.
  • I am the secret of eternal survival.
  • I am the way, the truth, and the life.
  • I am the infinite Father of my finite children.
  • I am the true vine; you are the branches.
  • I am the hope of all who know the living truth.
  • I am the living bridge from one world to another.
  • I am the living link between time and eternity.

182:1.26 Thus did Jesus enlarge the living revelation of the name of God to all generations. As divine love reveals the nature of God, eternal truth discloses his name in ever-enlarging proportions.
