You know I got an old bible that has alot of these names and meanings written by them so I did not have to keep looking them up over and over again , but this is Great!Maybe make a text only list and glue it inside the cover of the Bible?
I think it's a good idea because usally such lists aren't within reach when redaing the Bible.
I wonder if this list can be extended into the NT.
Only Jesus is on the list. But what about the twelve? Or even the likes of Pilate (=armed with a spear)
All names are translations. Can you imagine someone living there at that time having a name like James. I'm sure Jabcat likes to think so but I....
That is a good idea Tony !,
I have a notebook with a long list of this same sort of name meanings
could add that inside the Bible some how ..
me marked the BOOK yikes ! Believe it or not some folks condemned me for doing that ,,
but for me , the defense was seeing it better than never touching it and dusting it off from time to time as some type of family treasure [keep sake]
James is a form of Jacob /aka Israel
the name changes are also a bit of study in themselves
as Shelia brought up naming the creatures as Adam had dominion over
so Does God over all His creation .. new names and all ..
Rev 3:12 Him that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out:
and I will write upon him the name of my God
and the name of the city of my God, [which is] new Jerusalem
which cometh down out of heaven from my God:
and [I will write upon him] my new name.
