You’ve probably heard the name Elohim used for god in the Bible.  It’s actually a plural Hebrew name that means “God and Goddess” or simply “the Gods”. But whenever the word Elohim comes up, translators have always put the male singular word “God,” in there.  It ain’t right.  When we consider the mixed gender of Elohim, it is a feminine word with a masculine ending, the honest translation is “god and goddess”.  Elohim is a compound name. That’s why one being says to another in Genesis, let US make man in OUR image. 

You’ve all heard of the God El. He’s one of the two on the screen here, and here in the next slide he is looking like Zeus….
