Father, glorify thy name. There came therefore a voice out of heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.?
That is written at John 12:28, at Matt 6:9 Jesus says: After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Both of these scriptures tells us that Jesus was concerned about his Father’s name, why do the Christian churches today make Jesus God and ignore what Jesus himself considered the most important thing for his followers to do? Perhaps 2 Timothy 4:2-4 is the answer!
(3 For the time will come when they will not endure the sound doctrine; but, having itching ears, will heap to themselves teachers after their own lusts; 4 and will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside unto fables.)

Thank you for asking, although your question seems to be ignored just like the truth is ignored by the worlds Religions.
When Jesus got baptized this is what happened.......
(Matthew 3:16, 17) After being baptized, Jesus immediately came up from the water; and look! the heavens were opened up, and he saw God’s spirit descending like a dove and coming upon him. 17 Look! Also, a voice from the heavens said: “This is MY SON, the beloved, whom I have approved.”
All TRUE Christians know that Jesus is what God said He is...His SON!!!.......but as to why the so called 'christian churches' do what they do in ignoring that Jesus made His fathers name known (which He obviously did when He read from the scroll of Isaiah) can be summed up like this.......The worlds mainstream Religions are not from God!
Jesus said this to those who believe in Him but not His Father Jehovah.......
(Matthew 7:21-23) “Not everyone saying to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the Kingdom of the heavens, but only the one doing the will of MY FATHER who is in the heavens will. 22 Many will say to me in that day: ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name, and perform many powerful works in your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them: ‘I never knew you! Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness!’
Side note.......Some apostate may come along saying 'there is no J in Hebrew but you say Jehovah'...yeh well, we're speaking English here and the same as there was no J for Jesus either, we say Jesus anyway because it is English. God's Name in English has been JEHOVAH since before modern printing, and Has been in the English Bibles all along. We can also mention that Jehova has been in Spanish Bibles for about half a millenium also. We'll stick with the languages we speak here, and those languages use a J for ALL J Names and don't discriminate against Jehovah the true God.
It is March 31, and we will commemorate Jesus sacrifice on our behalf at Kingdom Halls all around the world after sundown. Hopefully many will be there to give thanks for this loving provision from Jehovah and for His Son Christ Jesus to.

He glorified His name by using it and by letting others know it as well! And true Christians will always use his precious name--Jehovah!

The spiritual ignorance of all who make Jesus God and ignore Jesus' Father go directly against what Jesus taught! That would make them opposed or against Jesus Christ and yet they claim to worship Jesus!
That just proves what is said at 2 Co 4:4, Satan has blinded the minds of the unbeliever!
