- Nadab was the first-born son of Aaron. He was one of the 74 men who went up to the mountain, to meet the Lord there (Exodus 24:9–11).
- Leviticus 10:1–2 records that Nadab and his brother Abihu died when they brought strange fire into the sanctuary.
- The Jews sort the book of Nahum under the section Neviim, “the Prophets”, and further under the sub-sections “the Latter prophets” and “the Minor prophets”. → (rca012.htm, appendix)
- No passages in the book of Nahum are quoted in the articles at this site.
- Jesus’ name: In the Greek text of the New Testament, the Lord’s name is spelled Iêsous (Ιησους, pronounced something like Ee-ay-sooce’). The Bible contains no mention of any Hebrew or Aramaic form of his name; it only gives us the spelling Iêsous. The facts are that we do not even know whether he had a Hebrew or Aramaic name. (Clarification: The land of Israel had been under Greek rule and influence for centuries. In NT times, Aramaic and Greek were the common languages in that land; some knew Latin and/or Hebrew as well.) But, if there was a Hebrew or Aramaic form of his name, it might have been something like Yehoshua.
- (In the Greek text of the Septuagint version, the LXX, the name of Joshua the son of Nun, in the Hebrew text Yehoshua, is spelled Iêsous, some 228 times, Exodus to Zechariah. It is the same in the Greek text of the NT, Acts 7:45 and Hebrews 4:8.)
- Who has the authority to give prayers or to do things “in Jesus’ name”? → rba101.htm – (rsa062.htm)

- Naphtali was the patriarch Jacob’s sixth son (the second child of Rachel’s handmaid Bilhah, see Genesis 30:7–8).
- Naphtali’s descendants came to form the tribe of Naphtali, one of Israel’s twelve tribes.
- Between circa 2700 and 2500 years ago, the Israelites were driven out from the Promised Land and taken into captivity and dispersion. The northern tribes, including Naphtali, never returned to that land. Through this, they became the ten lost tribes of Israel.
- Some writers have claimed that the Swedish people are Israelites, “the tribe of Naphtali”. Is that true? → rya092.htm – rya012.htm

Nathanael (the apostle) → rga093.htm
Nazareth, Nazarene, Nazarenes
- The town Nazareth (Nazareth in the Greek text of the NT) is mentioned in some 12 passages in the New Testament. Additionally, around 19 NT passages mention that town through its inhabitants (nazarenos or nazoraios in the Greek NT text).
- Jesus was born in Bethlehem but his family had to flee to Egypt. Later, they lived in Nazareth. When John the Baptist was killed, Jesus moved from Nazareth to Capernaum. (See Luke 2:1–7 and Matthew 2:13–23 and 4:12–16.)
- Acts 24:1–5 records how a person by the name Tertullus accused the apostle Paul of being a “ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes”. A note: There is no indication that the saints would have called themselves “Nazarenes”. Nor is there any connection between the saints and the fourth century Jewish sect which was called “Nazarenes”.
- Please note that the word “nazarite” has nothing to do with the town Nazareth. Look under the heading “Nazarite, nazarites”, below.
- The word “nazarite” which some bible-versions have in the Old Testament, comes from the old Hebrew noun naziyr, see Numbers 6:1–21.
- Regarding the “nazir-vow”, look under the heading “Vows”.
- The word and concept “nazarite” was not connected with the town Nazareth. (Look above, under the heading “Nazareth, Nazarene, Nazarenes”.)
Nazir – The word nazir, nazirites (nazarites) refers to people under the “nazir-vow”; see above.

Neviim (“the Prophets”)
- The Jews divide the books of the Old Testament into three main sections, Torah, Neviim and Kethuvim, whence the acronym TNK and the word Tanakh. → (rca012.htm, appendix)
- According to one reckoning, the section called Neviim or “the Prophets” is considered to contain the following books: First, “the Former prophets” (Joshua, Judges, 1 and 2 Samuel, 1 and 2 Kings). Then, the “Latter prophets”, divided in “the Major prophets” (Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel) and “the Minor prophets” (Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi).

- The New Testament manuscripts are written in Greek. There is no evidence that there would exist (or have existed) “more original texts” in some other language.
- The phrase “the New Testament” is really a mistranslation which came into existence along with the Latin Vulgate version. The correct wording is “the New Covenant”. For more on this, look under the heading “Testament”.
