 436        BIBLE NAMES AND THEIR SIGNIFICANCE






                            VI.
        BIBLE  NAMES AND THEIR  SIGNIFICANCE


                  IT is indeed remarkable and interesting
                  to notice the nomenclature of the Old
                  Testament, or the names given to
                  persons  in this wonderful book as 
                  they are  found in the original   He-
                  brew,  the oldest  language in the  
                  world.
   In these modern times, the proper names of persons
are duplicated; as, for instance, "Samuel Jones"  "Wil- 
liam R.  Smith"  "James Johnson."  and the like.  This         
system of namning persons seems to have come down,to ,
us with  the Christian  dispensation. This method of
naming has no significance or meaning whatever but is
simply to distinguish one individual from another.  It
is sometimes asked: "What is in a name?" We may
answver,  that in  some names  there is much meaning
while in some  other names there is no meaning at all
  How  many  readers of the Bible  have stopped long
enough  in their research  and study  to ask why the
personal  names of the Bible  were not duplicated?  In           
our opinion  (though it may  appear to others of  little
interest at first sight), it is a matter that should interest
all Bible readers.  There  must have  been some reason
for it.
