Nama Kristiani (Alkitabiah) dan Maknanya

Kelahiran seorang bayi selalu menjadi moment sukacita yang tak terlukiskan dalam setiap keluarga Kristiani. Sudah menjadi tradisi bahwa menjelang kelahiran bayi, para calon orang tua  sibuk mencari nama “Kristiani” atau nama “Alkitabiah”  yang dianggapnya terbaik, terindah untuk sang calon bayi. Salah satu rujukan dalam pencarian nama tersebut biasanya adalah Alkitab.

Memang Alkitab dipenuhi dengan banyak tokoh yang luar biasa dipakai Tuhan dalam kehidupannya. Para orang tua biasanya berharap bahwa anaknya akan mempunyai jiwa atau semangat yang sama dengan yang dimiliki tokoh Alkitab yang namanya dipakai untuk nama bayi mereka. Sebab itu, tidak heran apabila dalam kebanyakan nama bayi-bayi Kristiani, nama pertama mereka biasanya bersumber dari nama tokoh tertentu dalam Alkitab.

Demikian juga dalam peristiwa baptisan air. Pada gereja-gereja tertentu, ada tradisi memberikan “nama baptis” bagi jemaat yang dibaptis. Pada umumnya, nama baptis tersebut diambil dari nama tokoh tertentu di Alkitab. Apakah tujuan pemberian nama baptis tersebut? Tujuannya adalah agar jemaat tersebut kehidupannya dapat menjadi seperti tokoh tersebut, yaitu mempunyai kehidupan yang baik, kudus dan mempermuliakan nama TUHAN. Penggunaan nama Kristiani atau nama Alkitabiah telah menjadi tradisi yang panjang dalam sejarah gereja di dunia.

Darimanakah tradisi memberikan “nama Kristiani” tersebut berasal?

Nampaknya ada satu contoh teladan di Alkitab berkaitan dengan hal itu. Yaitu, suatu peristiwa ketika Allah memberikan nama “baru” bagi Yakub, yaitu “Israel”. Nama “Israel” itu sendiri berasal dari akar kata Ibrani “lisrot = wrestle” dan “El = God”.

Firman Tuhan mengisahkan:

Kejadian 32:28
“Lalu kata orang itu: “Namamu tidak akan disebutkan lagi Yakub, tetapi Israel, sebab engkau telah bergumul melawan Allah dan manusia, dan engkau menang“

Nama “Yakub” berasal dari kata Ibrani “Akev” yang artinya adalah  “heel” atau ‘pemegang tumit’. Artinya bila Yakub ingin memiliki sesuatu dia harus memegang tumit orang lain terlebih dahulu, atau menipu dulu baru dia bisa memiliki sesuatu yang diinginkan seperti yang pernah dia lakukan terhadap Esau.

Oleh sebab itu namanya berubah menjadi Israel artinya ‘Allah menang, Pangeran Allah’. Dan untuk mendapatkan nama Israel ini tidaklah mudah sebab ia terlebih dahulu harus bergumul dengan Malaikat hingga fajar pagi di Pniel. Tentunya perubahan nama ini bukan hanya sekedar iseng saja. Berubahnya Yakub menjadi Israel sebenarnya memiliki tujuan ilahi di dalamnya. Sebab pada akhirnya nama Israel ini dijadikan nama satu bangsa pilihan oleh Allah. Dan memang akhirnya Israel mendapatkan berkat-berkatnya dari Allah sesuai dengan janji-Nya.

Dalam masyarakat tertentu, ada pandangan bahwa nama mempunyai “kuasa” tertentu. Sebagai contoh:
Sebut saja ada seorang anak yang sejak lahirnya diberi nama Tony. Saat mulai menginjak remaja, ia sakit-sakitan bahkan hampir mati. Berapa banyak biaya yang harus dikeluarkan kedua orang tuanya agar anak tersebut bisa sembuh. Ketika akhirnya sembuh, kedua orang tuanya mengganti nama anak tersebut menjadi Santoso, dengan harapan anak tersebut sehat senantiasa. Dan setelah dewasa, anak tersebut menambah namanya dengan nama “Petrus”, sehingga menjadi Petrus Santoso, dengan tujuan ia akan menjadi orang yang kuat bagaikan batu karang dalam menghadapi tantangan hidup.

Sebagai kesimpulan, nampaknya nama seseorang mewakili kepribadian seseorang. Meskipun memang tidak selalu demikian pada kenyataannya. Sebab bisa saja seseorang bernama “Paulus”, namun dia ternyata seorang koruptor  :mad0261:

Mnt Strong's Hebrew and Greek Dictionary

Ioudas
ee-oo-das'
Of Hebrew origin [H3063]; Judas (that is, Jehudah), the name of ten Israelites; also of the posterity of one of them and its region: - Juda (-h, -s); Jude.


Mnt Thayer's Greek Definitions

Ioudas
Thayer Definition:
Judah or Judas = “he shall be praised
1) the fourth son of Jacob
2) an unknown ancestor of Christ
3) a man surnamed the Galilean, who at the time of the census of Quirinus, excited the revolt in Galilee, Act_5:37
4) a certain Jew of Damascus, Act_9:11
5) a prophet surnamed Barsabas, of the church at Jerusalem, Act_15:22,Act_15:27,Act_15:32
6) the apostle, Joh_14:22, who was surnamed Lebbaeus or Thaddaeus, and according to opinion wrote the Epistle of Jude.
7) the half-brother of Jesus, Mat_13:55
8) Judas Iscariot, the apostle who betrayed Jesus


Dari kedua kamus tsb, arti nama Yudas bagus sih bro..karena orginalnya dari bahasa Ibrani Judah/Yehuda.
