I was just reading Acts 17 today, and like it has before, the mystery of "the woman named Damaris" stuck with me. I decided to google search "why was Damaris named in the Bible?" and I found this. I love it, especially the last line. well done! :D

Wow, never would have even thought twice about her before! Now every time I read about a one time character, I shall wonder. :)

Thanks for the interesting thought!

"Yes, we know precious little of Damaris. We only know that she lived and that she believed, that she had faith. Maybe that is all we really need to know about a woman named Damaris."

Do we need to more than that about anyone?

I really liked this. It's very well written,and has a great ending. I have wondered occasionally about people mentioned just once in the bible, and why do they write the person's name, but not say anything else about them? This kinda answers that question in a way. Thanks!

Awesome. I've wondered about other names like that in the bible actually- nice to find I'm not alone.

That's amazing. I've been looking for 'a zap of wisdom' (our youth group's little special thingy.) Would you mind if I used this? Just to read out or something, nothing bad. Please email if I can. _

You're quite right. That is ALL I needed to know about a woman named Damaris.

Yum. Chocolate. Damaris clave unto Paul, so she's a good woman. And though she is only mentioned once, imagine being mentioned once in the bible. Even just once...

You know, I never even knew that name was in there until I read a book by Janette Oke, called "A Woman Named Damaris." It's about a young girl, Damaris, who runs away from her alchoholic father and terrified mother. During her path to adulthood, she meets a variety of interesting characters, including an elderly woman who shows Damaris her name in the Bible. It takes some time, but she finally realizes the meaning behind the name, and the meaning of her own existence. It's an awesome book, by an awesome Christian writer. I was really surprised and pleased when I saw this here; I mean, the name only shows up once out of the entire Bible, and I'd never met anyone that had ever heard of it. So it's cool. ) ~md

True, we need not know, and we need not be known by men. God knows the heart of all men. His favour is the only thing we should seek more of, and His attention we already have. If God knows every single sparrow, and He takes care of all the lilies of the field, how much more will He notice and love us.
