Most of us know that biblical names often
have a meaning that describes a major circumstance in the lives of the
characters. The name Moses means “drawn out of the water” and has
connections to a major event in the life of Moses.
A is for Adam, E is for Eve
by David Brown, Tate
Publishing, 2009, 92 pages, $9.99,
(paperback), ISBN-13: 978-1-60799-089-5
What David Brown has done is to go through a large number of biblical
names and explain what each name means in the original language. The
name Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist for example, means
YaHWeH remembers. God had made a promise to this man and God remembered
the promise in conjunction with Jesus’ birth.
The book was intended to help people looking for a name for their
child, but it would be very useful as a quick reference for people
preparing lessons or sermons. It is a small 6-by-6-inch 89-page book,
that can be a useful resource.
