Yeah, I was pretty tickled pink when I heard Missler expound that. Its hard for me to verify if thats really what each of those Hebrew names literally mean, but I wouldn't put it past God to do that. But then again, it would have been hidden there for the unbelieving Jew, not the gentile per se. Yet there are plenty of other references to Christ suffering and death that are astoundingly overlooked by the Rabbis.

As for necessity to know Hebrew, I don't believe it necessary at all, but granted, one wouldn't find that out without some knowledge of the language.
Let's face it though, you don't need the pattern referred to above to discover the gospel in English..

I have, however, often wanted to know the meaning of people's untranslated names, and place names, since the Jews were quite particular about what they named things.
