I am jumping in here lol , on a leap of faith
since we are talking about these things
I have considered the New Testament to be the BOOK OF LIFE ..
and written in them are these three names and those names have meaning as we can be found also in the same [boat/ body mind set]
Kim a dear friend pointed out to me once why did Jesus say Martha , Martha twice ? was she being double minded ? I thought Yes! of course that must be why Jesus called it out for observation !!
its a principal thing just look and see if Martha was being in the world / this life
and also being spirital minded too ! that is why she got so stressed out and asked for sisterly help ...
see the name meanings and what is in the book of life and how it does apply to our lives the soul and spirit of every one
