Girls, Women In the Bible

Are girls/women ever named in the Bible?

Yes. 165 are named in the Bible.

The only births mentioned by name are key to the purpose of the Bible. These include the line of oldest sons (Patriarchs) or the children who have a special role to play in the Biblical story. You’ll notice that afterwards, it will just say “and more children were born” or words that mean that, and that’s it.

  1. That is brilliant. It is also worth the mention of the importance of women as well. That’s saying something being a man…. But it starts of with Adam & God said “its not good for man to be alone” My wife Sharon would agree with this….
    I think there is a great Bible study there somewhere.

    1. I agree Les. Actually I know of a Christian woman who does a workshop on women and the Bible; Vonda Skelton at Fun and spiritual both.
