So grateful that you share your in depth study and testimony of our Wonderful Savior..
I think of another definition of 'wonderful' as well: "of a sort that causes or arouses wonder; amazing; astonishing. He definitely was amazing and gave us great cause to wonder.
Thank you. You have given us wonderful things to ponder.
Thank you for your post. I have no doubt that He is wonderful, but "Wonderful" was never meant as a name (noun). You have been mislead by an errant comma (remember that Hebrew contains no punctuation - that was added later in translation). Note that every other name listed in Isaiah (and repeated in the Book of Mormon) has Christ's names using both an adjective and a noun. The King James translation places a comma after the word "wonderful" making it a noun when it is really an adjective modifying the noun "Counselor." Most other translations omit the comma after the adjective, making the list of names logical. Handel's "Messiah" made the error famous. His name is "Wonderful Counselor" and not "Wonderful."
Beautiful thoughts and words. You have opened my eyes to many new and profound ideas. Thank you for helping me draw closer to my Savior.
