There were some typos in the email that was sent out. This is the correct version of that.
Not many know that both YHVH and YHWH are prounounced as our modern day V in english. They are both pronounced Yehovah. The shortened version of the Father’s name changes a vowel and becomes Yah.
We have some people saying the V in YHVH is actually a W (waw) making it YHWH.
Most Jewish populations in the 1800’s when this research was conducted pronounced the Vav with a V sound. Even opposite factions within Judaism agreed it was a V sound. Only a handful of Jewish groups who were heavily influenced by Aramaic, adopted the waw since there is no V sound in Aramaic. YHVH in Hebrew is pronounced Yohd Hay Vav Hay.
