Really not sure what the point of this template is; Kurios is the only one of the terms which has any very direct connection to the Tetragrammaton, but only through being used as a substitute for it (i.e. a translation of Hebrew Adonai, NOT a translation of Hebrew YHWH).

Only Kurios? Every single one of the six terms is used in the Greek Old Testament for Yahweh. Here is Pantokrator (Almighty).--Psuit (talk) 16:22, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
That's nice -- however, they still don't have much connection with the Tetragrammaton YHWH in the context of the New Testament. AnonMoos (talk) 18:38, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
I don't understand what you mean by "YHWH in the context of the New Testament" since Yahweh's name is never used in the New Testament. The titles of Yahweh in Hebrew/Greek Old Testament are used for Jesus in the Greek New Testament.--Psuit (talk) 21:03, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
In the context of the New Testament, these titles don't have much connection with the Tetragrammaton YHWH... AnonMoos (talk) 09:31, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
