Notes[edit]

I took down the architect of the Temple of Solomon, since he is indeed named in the bible- see Kings 1, Chapter 7.
I also suggest taking down Nimrod's wife, for the reason that she is not at all a biblical figure. The scriptures make no mention of such a person, not even by implication (in contrast to the patriarchs' mates, who, while not directly mentioned, their existance can be deduced from the fact their children are mentiond). The very dubious source cited makes for another concideration. Harvest day fool 18:58, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

I Kings 7 calls him Hiram of Tyre; the full name Hiram Abif is not set forth. This is a judgment call. The legend that has Semiramis being the wife of Nimrod was something I added later, mostly on account of its notoriety. Smerdis of Tlön 20:07, 8 February 2006 (UTC)
Well, he is most certainly not a nameless biblical figure. Harvest day fool 21:53, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

The serpent[edit]

The unnamed serpent in Genesis is named as Satan in Revelations

70 Disciples[edit]

I don't know how to add things to articles, but there is a wikipedia article that gives a list of names of the 70 Disciples sent out by Jesus: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seventy_Disciples 128.100.110.88 (talk) 17:42, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Were they not referred to as the 72 others? Sent out two by two? Should they not be included too? Yes, indeed they are in there as Seventy Disciples, But why not here on this Article Page ??

The Poem of the Man God, Maria Valtorta.[edit]

All the names of these were given to Maria Valtorta, if you believe that she was granted these. Her books in five volumes are popular (Centro Editoriale Valtortiano)(Grafica PieroLuigi Albery)(Copyright 1989 03036 Isola del Liri, Fr. Italy). Many of them agree with what is given in the article page. (Sorry can't quote). I highly recommend.

Veronica[edit]

The lady who offered Jesus the towel on the road to Calvary, should be added to the article page. Maria Valtorta calls her Nike. "Veronica" became to be known as veil or towel, which was called after her.

MacOfJesus (talk) 12:24, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

I view "nameless", as a person who came once and "disappeared", but may have been briefly named, but nothing else. Such as Simon of Cyrene, father of Alexander and Rufus.

St. Philip the Apostle and the Ethiopian[edit]

Acts 8: 26-40.

This person, one of the first from the continent of Africa to be Baptised, if not the first, is not mentioned by name and should be in the article page. He was "an officer at the court of the kandake".

Damned rich man[edit]

This is a parable of Lk 16: 19-31. It is truly stretching reason to seek the name of the rich man, "Dives", as the Latin indicates that his name means literally: rich man. Whereas Lazarus means literally: poor man.

Would you perhaps interrupt Jesus in giving the parable of the man who fell upon robbers on the road between Jericho and Jerusalem, to ask where exactly on the road did this happen, a bit like a modern policeman?

The Martyrdom of the seven brothers and their mother[edit]


The Name of the page[edit]

The Name of the page changed (April 15, 2010), from: List of Biblical nameless, to: List of names for Biblical nameless, even as I was placing in entries!

MacOfJesus (talk) 11:50, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

No, the name hasn't changed. It's had this name since 2003. Rather, an AfD discussion, which you were part of, closed with a consensus to merge relevant content from List of Biblical nameless (Catholic Bible) into this article. See the top of this page. -- Radagast3 (talk) 12:06, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Woman taken in adultery[edit]

I removed this passage from Woman taken in adultery:

Name: Naomi
Source: The Spear by Louis de Wohl
Appears in the Bible at: John 8
De Wohl's historical novel tells the story of the centurion who pierced Christ's side. Named Cassius Longinus, he falls in love with a young Jewish woman named Naomi who is married to a much older rich merchant. She is convicted of adultery and sentenced to be stoned, but is saved by Christ.

The article's opening limits it to names from tradition, so I didn't think a characterization from a 20th-century novel would count. Lusanaherandraton (talk) 08:25, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

And to comment on my own comment, I don't think "tradition" should just mean "Judeo-Christian", so have added Islam to the specs. Otherwise, Bilqis wouldn't fit in, and that's the most popular name for the Queen of Sheba, in my experience. And while The Book of Mormon is relatively modern, it describes genuine belief tradition, so I should think it belongs. Lusanaherandraton (talk) 08:55, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Mother of WHO?[edit]

I removed the assertion that Zuleikha was the mother of Joseph's eventual wife. She is stated as the daughter of Potipherah, not of Potiphar. I also scaled back the assertion that he found her charms tempting. Marc W. Abel (talk) 04:16, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Moses' wife[edit]

Under the information about Moses' wife, the paragraph then switches and begins talking about Abraham's women. This is confusing - should this section only talk about Moses, and then another section talk about Abraham? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tlbail01 (talkcontribs) 11:50, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

Young man running from Gethsemane in Mark 14[edit]

"51 A certain young man was following him, wearing nothing but a linen cloth. They caught hold of him, 52 but he left the linen cloth and ran off naked." I suppose this young man to be Mark himself, but have no evidence. Anyone? Cgmusselman (talk) 03:55, 7 April 2015 (UTC)
