A-Z Challenge Part 12 Names and Places from The Bible. J is for...


I am putting a header this time.  There are numerous J's in the Bible, and in all honesty I could spend three blogs trying to list them and define them.

However I feel that I will give some of the more interesting as well as well known.  If you do not see a name that you feel should be here, feel free to add in the comments.

Thank you.

  1. My first thought was James. My English teacher challenged me to memorize the entire book. I'm so glad she had. It's stuck with me ever since.
