Hitchcock’s Bible Names
What’s in a name? Plenty! God names people and places for what they are. “Israel” means “who prevails with God,” and Elijah means “God the Lord, the strong Lord,” while Beth-lehem means “house of bread.” Do you know what Samuel, David, Stephen, Melchezedek, and Nazareth mean? Look it up in Hitchcock’s Bible Names. Knowing the meaning of Bible names is essential to understanding the Bible. Hitchcock’s Bible Names Dictionary was originally published in the late 1800s. It contains more than 2,500 Bible and Bible-related proper names and their meanings. Hitchcock’s Bible Names Dictionary, a 33-page reprint, is available from Giving & Sharing, PO Box 100, Neck City, MO 64849, for a suggested donation of $3.00 plus postage.
