The Roman Jove is a unique god whose recognition is often clouded by religious zealots who do not want his true identity to be known.  It appears his deity was grafted into the Roman culture where he became identified as the Greek IAO.  Zeus is the Greek god of the earth.  He is said to have created the first woman Pandora and also the god who sent a world-wide flood to destroy mortals.  Jupiter is the Roman counterpart of Zeus.  Jove is associated with Zeus, Jupiter, and Yahweh.

The name Jove first appears to be the name of a Jewish god whom the Israelites in their apostasy borowed from the Babylonian Ia or Ya.  This god was adopted by the Jews from among the Amorites and Cannanites and commonly referred to as Yahwi but in title as Baal.  The consort of Jove or Baal was Ashtoreth. Ashtoreth is the counterpart of the Greek goddess Hera and the Roman goddess Juno (for whom June is named and the origin of June brides);The son of Jove/Baal and Ashtoreth was Tammuz.  In the Greek pantheon, Ashtoreth is recognized as Hera/Juno.  Tammuz is recognized as Apollo.

Who then is Jove?

According to some scholars Jove is pronounced Jo-ve.  Some say the letter "J" is not correct since they claim there was no letter "J" or "J" sound until the 15th century AD. The sound of the letter "J" goes back at least 4,000BC. It is the letter "J" that is modern for which the sound now stands. So they replace the letter "J" with the letter "I" to form "Iove".  These same scholars then claim that the Greek "I" is the same as the Hebrew "Y" or yod and thus the name appears as "Yove" and pronounced by some as "ya-o-ve."   Some Yahwist claim that the letters YHWH are each pronounced as "Y=e; H=ah; W=o H=ah to form "e-ah-o-ah."  

The tetragrammaton YHVH would then be "e-ah-va-ah."  With the Greek/Roman Jove we can see it would be pronounced as "J-ah-va-ah."  And taking the "Jah" and converting the "J" to a "Y" we would then have "Yah" and finally "Yah-va-ah."  If we convert the "v" into a "w" as is done between YHVH and YHWH the name would be "Yah-wa-ah" or "Yahwaah."

Jove is then none other than Yahwah or Yahweh.  Some scholars claim that the Greek "Jo" when compared to renderings in the Septuagint (LXX) is "Yah" so that we have Jo-Yah and thus Jove is Yah-ve.
