Short answer to corroborate what the others have said: the name of God in the Old Testament, which is shown as LORD in the King James Version, and is translated as Jehovah or Yahweh (note: I'm not a Hebrew expert); and which is what Christ called himself in John 8:58 -- "I am", or "I am that I am", means the "Self-existent one" -- meaning his power, etc. ...
