First of all, what's the O in "KJBO Christian"?
Second, as you know, the list is open to members of all faiths (and of no
faith), and the fact that a member makes his religious orientation known
simply makes it easier for the rest of us to "know where he's coming from".
On the other hand, before inviting him to join, please make sure that he
understands the following excerpt from the list rules:
"B-Hebrew is a list at which members can discuss issues and raise questions
regarding Biblical Hebrew language and literature. All discussions must
proceed with the basic scholarly principles of logic and evidence. Arguments
based on religious faith and theology are not permitted. B-Hebrew is a
non-theological forum. While the discussion of Biblical Hebrew will
sometimes approach theological issues, members should ensure that they steer
discussion towards language and literature, rather than theology. Please do
not treat the forum as your own personalised column at which you can make
pronouncements. Instead, you should always seek to interact with members in
a cordial and reasoned way which promotes discussion."
In other words, if what he intends to do is to state "Hebrew Word #3068
should be read as "JEHOVAH" and not read as "Adonay" because that's what I
believe" over and over again, he will very quickly find himself on
Also please make sure that he knows that the YHWH/Adonai issue has been
discussed at length, and suggest that he look through the archives to see if
he really has anything substantial to add. If not, once again he might find
that some members, moderators included, will allow him a very short leash.
In other words, if he comes to discuss and to learn and to respect others,
he's most welcome. If he comes to preach, he might find a more receptive

"Would B-hebrew discuss the name Jehovah with a KJBO Christian? " is only
a hypothetical question.
I am not a KJBO Christian, although I am somewhat familiar with their
I wrote the question below to a KJBO Christian on
Who's your Final Authority / Which Bible Discussion Board.
Would you be willing to join the B-hebrew Discussion Board and attempt to
convince the Hebrew Scholars who post on B-Hebrew, that it is they that
are in error, not the KJB.
What method would you use to prove to Hebrew Scholars that the Masoretes
wanted Hebrew Word #3068 to be read as "JEHOVAH" and not read as
Since 1611, how many KJBO Christians have spent any time trying to
convince a Hebrew Scholar that Hebrew Word #3068 should be read as
"JEHOVAH", and not read as "Adonay"?
Shain, It certainly would be interesting to see you and Bibleprotector
join the B-Hebrew Discussion Board, and attempt to convince B-Hebrew
Scholars that the correct pronunciation of Hebrew Word 3068 is "JEHOVAH"

A KJBO Christian with the Discussion Board name : "Bibleprotector"
I don't know the board you refer to, or who these "Hebrew Scholars" are,
but it seems like a fairly secular group to me.
I have a more astounding and convincing way of showing that God's name is
than what they would allow.

"Bibleprotector" to join B-hebrew and
attempt to convince B-Hebrew members that God's name is actually
