(Note: This is not a typical article, but a reposting of a forum post at the FW forum.)


This is so cool. We had a guest speaker a couple of weeks ago at church, when we had a mini-conference on Israel and prophecy in the Bible, and Israel's place in God's plan.

The one speaker, Tom Meyer, is a missionary to Jews as well as a traveling speaker, inspiring people to get more serious about memorizing scripture. One part of his presentation was a dramatic recitation of the entire book of Revelation. I missed that part, because Eileen was fighting a horrible cough/cold. But I bought recordings the next day.

During Sunday school, he did part of Genesis and really dug into the meanings behind the Hebrew words and other things. It was fascinating. The one part that blew my mind was that the book of Genesis 5, which gives the genealogy from Adam to Noah and his sons also tells the story of salvation - in the meaning of their names.

This is awesome!
Adam..............Man
Seth...............Appointed
Enosh.............Mortal
Cainain..........Sorrowful
Mahalalel.......The Blessed Lord
Jared.............Shall descend
Enoch............Teaching
Methuselah....His death shall bring
Lamech..........Despair
Noah..............Comfort

It is amazing how God has things like this hidden in His word for us to find, if we dig a little deeper.
