Memory Checker Update

In a recent post, “Also Known As,” I mentioned there are at least six New Testament personalities who had their names changed, had nicknames, or were known by two names. Here is my list:

  • Simon/Peter (Matthew 4:18); Cephas (John 1:42)
  • James and John/ Boanerges or Sons of Thunder (Mark 3:17)
  • Joses/Barnabas (Acts 4:36)
  • Tabitha/Dorcas (Acts 9:36)
  • Simeon/Niger (Acts 13:1)
  • Saul/Paul (Acts 13:9)

Memory Checker Challenge

There are at least seven individuals in the Old Testament with name changes. What are their other names?

Abram (Genesis 17:5)

Sarai (Genesis 17:15)

Jacob (Genesis 32:28)

Naomi (Ruth 1:19-20)

Daniel (Dan. 1:6-7)

About womenfromthebook

Mine is a life-long interest in the women of the Bible, and I enjoy exploring the world in which they lived, and discovering the challenges that they faced. I have enough curiosity about them to last the rest of my life.
