I know only a little elementary Hebrew, but am secure in saying that Emanuel
comes from "El", one of the Hebrew names for G-d and "imanu", which is the
literal Hebrew for "with us".  Hence, "G-d is with us."  I write G-d in this
fashion, because some observant Jews do not feel that His name should be
written out except in sacred context, such as a prayerbook.

I hope this is helpful.

Emanuel is one of many Hebrew names for God...  And rather stupidly, I never
imagined that Emanuel Lowi might be Jewish...  which now makes more sense as
it explains why he is named Emanuel... and why his comments, beliefs and
theology are similar to BD and others who I have conversed with off line in
the past.

There are books in Christian bookstores that talk about all of the different
Biblical names of God

Either way... I should not have started that sentance with Ironically...  It
wasn't very nice.

Maybe Duane means ( quick to put foot in mouth)


Can Duane and/or Emanual point me to a source of study for the expressions
"God is with us" and "god is my refuge"?
