The Latin/Italian word for Jupiter is Jove. The Hebrew word for God is Je-ho-va. Is this a coincidence or are these two words the same God?

Jehovah is not the Hebrew for God.
However -- Jupiter is Latin for "Father God" and the New Testament story of "the virgin birth" is just another take on the usual story of Jupiter impregnating a human girl who would then give birth to a great hero who performed feats to battle evil and eventualy was killed to rise into the fullness of his godhood.
So -- the Christian concept of the Father God and the son of God are most certainly from the Roman.
But this has nothing to do with a Hebrew concept.
Jehovah is a degeration of the Hebrew and transformation of several levels through Latin into the English Christian word for God.
So -- the similarity to Jove may well not be a coincidence -- but this was a transformation by Christian Latin speakers that has nothing to do with the original Hebrew.

Maybe they all refer to the God El?

Incorrect! Jehovah is God's Jewish name translated to English!
Correct Hebrew of God is Ya-waySource(s): Bible, history

God is LOVE. There is no name for God, which is why he called himself "I AM".
