Holy Spirit Puns

As one of our favorite Bible Teachers (Dr. Chuck Missler) is so fond of pointing out (and I love this observation) the Holy Spirit often deals in puns. Being fond of puns myself it's interesting and thrilling to find them in personal Bible study.

I found one today while reading the book of Exodus and decided it was time to keep on the lookout for them. Though many we might miss if we do not know the meaning of a Hebrew name, etc.

Exo 2:10 And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.

That is the meaning of the name "Moses", but it also refers to him being the one to draw the Hebrews out of Egypt.
