A-Z Challenge. Names and Places in the Bible April 1st and 2nd delayed #atozchallenge


This is an apology, I would have posted these first two posts Friday and Saturday, but only came up this idea last night.

This will be the different names, locations and terms that come from The Bible in alphabetical order. Not all names will be featured, these are some that are significant to me. 

I sincerely hope that you enjoy this journey.

A is for

Aaron: Older brother of Moses, spokes person for his brother and first high priest of the Israelite's.

Abel: Second son of Adam and Eve.  Murdered out of envy by his brother Cain.

Abiel: Name of the Grandfather of King Saul of the old Testament.

Abram: Swallowed by an earthquake after opposing Moses.

Adam: First man created in Gods image,inhabited
