A NEW NAME
That the name of an individual is of great significance is brought out in many instances in the Bible. To elucidate this fact, Mary Baker Eddy has included in her book "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" a chapter entitled "Glossary." This chapter gives the metaphysical interpretation of many Bible names, thereby showing their spiritual significance and original meaning.
At times of spiritual enlightenment the names of certain individuals were changed, and a more spiritual sense was conveyed by the new name. Familiar to students of Christian Science is the Bible account of the changing of Jacob's name to Israel, when his material sense yielded to a more spiritual sense. With Saul's acceptance of the Christ, his name was changed to Paul; and after his recognition of the Christ, Simon was renamed Peter.
When the disciples came to Jesus, exulting in their ability to heal, our Master responded (Luke 10:20), "Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven."
