In Bible times, names often had a special meaning attached to them. A person’s name was not only to identify them, but it gave insight into who they were. At other times names were used to explain a situation for example how Naomi changed her name to “Mara” after she lost so much of her family, it meant “bitter”.
We can know God more by studying His names as revealed in the Bible. You will learn that the meaning behind God’s names reveals his nature and who He is. This is an interesting way of knowing God. Think about it, God knows our names; shouldn’t we know His?
