Agape Chapel Ministries, Sunday School Bible Study Notes
†by Nick Bibile
Hebrew word for, Ďto be holyí is quadash comes from the root word, qad, which means to cut or to separate. This applies primarily to God. Same idea is found in N.T words hagiazo and hagios.
Holiness of God can be divided into three.
Godís nature in holiness
God in his nature is holy. He is absolutely distinct from all his creatures. Angels are holy but Godís holiness in his nature is above the angels. This is one of his transcendental attributes. (Beyond the reach of ordinary, we cannot even comprehend as itís beyond our reach of understanding) Holiness is his supreme perfection. He is holy in everything that reveals in him. In the O.T a persons name signifies something to his nature. In the same way Godís name is holy.
1 Sam 2:2
Ethical Aspect of his holiness
This is relating to morals.
