LORD

Title commonly used of God in the Old Testament (Adonai), and commonly applied to Christ in the New Testament (Kyrios). In the Vulgate it is used in place of Yahweh. The consistent way that St. Paul and other New Testament writers use the term of Christ indicates that they regarded him as God.
