Men and Women of the Bible ~ Blogging through the Alphabet (Z)

Blogging through the Alphabet Men and Women of the Bible

Well, we made it to the letter z for this blogging through the alphabet round. I have had fun learning about the men and women in the Bible. If you haven't read any of the posts, you can read all of them at the landing page.

 Zipporah: "a female bird"

We know that Zipporah was Moses' wife. Her father was Reuel (Jethro) and her sons were Gershom and Eliezer. Zipporah met Moses one day at the well. She and her sisters were taking their father's flock to give them water. Some men tried to drive the women away, but Moses defended them and watered their flock. Their father had them invite Moses to dinner. Moses stayed with them a while and Reuel offered his daughter Zipporah to Moses in marriage. They soon had sons and Moses decided to go back to Egypt.

Exodus 2:21-22 ~ And Moses was content to dwell with the man: and he gave Moses Zipporah his daughter. And she bare him a son, and he called his name Gershom: for he said, I have been a stranger in a strange land.

Zacchaeus: "pure"

Zacchaeus was the chief tax collector in Jericho. He found out Jesus was going to pass through and he wanted to see him. When he got to to the place, there was already a crowd and Zacchaeus was short and not able to see anything. So, he climbed a tree. When Jesus was passing through, he saw Zacchaeus in the tree and told him He would be visiting his house.

Luke 19:2-3 ~ And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich. And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature.

Luke 19:5-6 ~ And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house. And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.
