“The Way” is one of the earliest terms used to describe what is now known as Christianity (Acts 9:2; 19:9, 23; 22:4; 24:14, 22). It evokes the idea of a path or route that God has made available through Jesus (John 14:6-7) that leads back him.
The term “Yahweh” comes from the Hebrew word YHWH, which through its long and winding history of translation through several languages (Hebrew, Greek, and English) is one of several names for God. Following the Jewish exile into Babylon in the 6th century B.C., the term began to take on an increasingly sacred standing among the other names which described God, so much so that many within the Jewish faith withheld speaking the word aloud, out of reference for God. For that reason, we often refer to this project simply as The Way.
