I’m sure you’ve heard the old saying, “What’s in a name?” For most people the meaning of their name doesn’t really matter. But that’s not the case when it comes to names in the Bible. Every name has a meaning, and its recorded for us in the Bible for a reason. So when we come to a chapter of genealogies like the one we’ll be covering today in our study in Genesis, we can’t just skip over the names and go to the next chapter. We need to look at each of one of them and see if God has a message for us in their meaning. And I think as we look at the genealogy of Adam in chapter five, we’ll see that the Lord has series of important lessons for us embedded in these names.
