I am in a women's bible study at my church. We are doing an inductive study through the book of Genesis. It is really good so far. A whole lot happened in Genesis and we're only on chapter 13! I learned something really cool last week as we were reading genealogy in chapter five. Here is the list of Hebrew names within the genealogy and their English meaning:
Hebrew name and it's English meaning
Mahalalel-The Blessed God
Jared-Shall come down
Methusela-his death shall bring
Noah-Rest, or comfort.
The cool part is the meaning of the names is The Gospel hidden within a genealogy in Genesis! check it out:
Man is appointed mortal sorrow; but the Blessed God shall come down teaching that His death shall bring the despairing rest.
