Jeremiah 23:5-6

  "Behold, the days come, says Jehovah, that I will raise to David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and act wisely, and shall do judgment and justice in the earth. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely. And this is His name by which He shall be called, JEHOVAH, OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS."

  Jeremiah 23:5-6 presents us with two key points to consider in our Bible study. Who is the righteous Branch? And the multiple application of the name Jehovah

  The righteous Branch of Jer 23:5, is identified by Isa 11:1,
- - "And a Shoot goes out from the stump of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots."
and by Matthew 1:1-16,
- - "The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham."
We can determine through biblical evidence, that the righteous Branch in Jer 23:5 is Jesus, the Son of God.

  We find that Jer 23:6, names the righteous Branch as, Jehovah, Our Righteousness. We, also, see in Jeremiah 23:5, that it is Jehovah, JHVH or YHWH who names the Branch. From syntax, context, & verse construction, it is clearly evident that two, separate, and distinct persons are represented in Jer 23:5-6; and that each is named Jehovah; just as we found in Isa 48:16, Isa 61:1-3, & Zec 10:12.

  While Jer 23:5-6 does not show a trinity of persons in the Godhead, it does show a plurality of Persons represented as God, which lends some support to the belief in a triune nature of God, which is called the Trinity Doctrine.
