In the Bible, everyone’s name has a meaning and either coincidentally or purposefully, those names describe some aspect of the person’s appearance or character.
I’ll stop short of stating an opinion on the biblical writers’ intent when it came to the names of biblical characters except to pose this question: “If the names describing the individual was given at birth, how did the parents know what characteristics or personality traits their child would possess as adults?”
God’s ways are, indeed, a mystery. For instance, who could have guessed that Derek CHAUVIN would end up being a racist murderer?
His name is CHAUVIN right?
Using the rules of the English language, CHAUVIN would or could be a root word for the word CHAUVINISM right?
The definition for CHAUVINISM is, “the irrational belief in the superiority or dominance of one’s own group or people, who are seen as strong and virtuous, while others are considered weak, unworthy or inferior.”
Chauvin’s first name is DEREK In Hebrew, the word DEREK means, “A path or a way.”
DAMN! How did they know?
