Notes & Transcripts

Introduction: We sometimes use words talking about God that are not used in ordinary conversation. These are special words that we, as Christians, tend to reserve for God. Unfortunately, the meanings of these words are not always clear because we don’t use them much. One such word that this lesson is about is Majesty.

a. From megas, great, denotes greatness, majesty; it is used of God the Father, signifying His greatness and dignity

b. The use of “Majesty” as a title for God may be rendered in some languages as “the one who is truly great” or “... truly important.” In other instances a more satisfactory equivalent is “the one who is truly wonderful.” Louw - Nida
