Multiple names thread

(1/3) > >>

I think things are (possibly) overlooked because different names are given to the same person, region or object.
In this thread I want to collect such things. I'll compile everything in this first post.

Hermon = Sirion = Shenir = Sion
Hermon: A sanctuary
Sirion:  Breastplate
Shenir: Snow mountain
Sion: Lofty

(Deut 3:9) (Which Hermon the Sidonians call Sirion; and the Amorites call it Shenir;)
(Deut 4:48) From Aroer, which is by the bank of the river Arnon, even to mount Sion, which is Hermon,

Jacob = Israel = Jesurun(Deu 32:15)
Israel is entire nation
Israel = Ten Northern tribes => House of Israel
Ten Northren tribes = Joseph = Ephraim => House of Ephraim

Judah=Kingdom of Judah=2 southern tribes=Jews=modern day Israel

Also see this thread.

Mt. Horeb = Mt. Sinai = Mt. Serabit
Jerusalem = Jebus = Salem = City of David = Zion
Jerusalem: Teaching of peace
Jebus: Treshing place  (Also see this thread.)
Salem: Peace
Zion: parched place, sunny mountain

Judges 19:10 However, the man was not willing to spend that night; so he rose and departed, and came opposite Jebus (that is, Jerusalem). With him were the two saddled donkeys; his concubine was also with him
2 Samuel 5:7 Nevertheless David took the strong hold of Zion: the same is the city of David.
Bethlehem = Ephrath

Genesis 35:19 So Rachel died and was buried on the way to Ephrath (that is, Bethlehem).

Bethlehem = house of bread.
Ephrath =
1) a place near Bethel where Rachel died and was buried
2) another name for BethlehemCalvary = Mt. Olives = Golgotha

Calvary: A skull
Olives: Olive tree, olives
Golgotha: Skull

(place of counting heads)Gentiles = Dogs

Dog: Someone with an impure mind. In the Jewish mind everyone not being a Jew.Yom Kippur = Atomement Day = Day of the Lord = The Last Day = The Day of WrathIsrael = Elect

(Rom 9:6) But it is not as that the word of God has failed. For all those from Israel, these are not Israel,Feast of Trumpets = Yom Teruah = Day of the awakening blast = Day of opening gates = Last trump = Day of hiding


oh yeah...  :thumbsup:

Judah=Kingdom of Judah=2 southern tribes=Jews=modern day Israel

Mt. Horeb= Mt. Sinai


Mt. Horeb = Mt. Sinai = Mt. Serabit

Exodus 3:1 Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God.

Exodus 17:6 I will stand there before you by the rock at Horeb. Strike the rock, and water will come out of it for the people to drink." So Moses did this in the sight of the elders of Israel.

Located in the Sinai wilderness/desert, Horeb is also a mountain of Sinai.  In fact, it was only in the fourth century A.D. that "Mount Sinai" even existed -- apparently given the name by Greek Christian monks almost two thousand years after Moses.  In modern times, the mountain called Gebel Musa -- "Mount of Moses" -- is now the alleged stand-in for the holy mountain, but Mount Horeb is actually the peak now called Mount Serabit, at a location called Serabit el-Khadim.

Many confuse the Mount Sinai (Left of Red Sea) that Moses ascended to receive the Law from the LORD GOD, with the Mount Sinai of Arabia (Right of Red Sea) that is spoken about in Galatians 4:24-25 Link
