Possible List of Names from the Bible
Who Are the 24 Elders?
Revelation 4: 4 & 10 -11 / Revelation 5: 8 & 14

Revelation 4:4

4 Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads.

Revelation 4:10-11

10 the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying: 11 "You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created."

Revelation 5:8

8 Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.

Revelation 5:14

14 Then the four living creatures said, "Amen!" And the twenty-four elders fell down and worshiped Him who lives forever and ever.

Keep in mind that Jesus states several times in the New Testament: "Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob..."
Luke 13: 28
28 "There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and yourselves thrust out."
Matthew 22: 32
32 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living."
With that fact established, let us look again at the geneology lines found in Luke 3: 34-38 and make sure that we include Abraham, Isaac and stop with Jacob!
Luke 3: 34 - 38

34 ...the son of Jacob, the son of Isaac, the son of Abraham, the son of Terah, the son of Nahor, 35 the son of Serug, the son of Reu, the son of Peleg, the son of Eber, the son of Shelah, the son of Cainan, the son of Arphaxad, the son of Shem, the son of Noah, the son of Lamech, the son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch, the son of Jared, the son of Mahalalel, the son of Cainan, the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God. Now we take this lineage and reverse it so it makes sense...

One change needs to be made: God couldn't be one of the 24 "elders", so we remove God as one of the elders and replace it with the one person who is missing in this lineage.
Who is missing from this lineage? ABEL!

Before Seth, Abel was the chosen line before he was murdered by his brother Cain.

Abel is defiently an "elder".

Add Abel to the 24 elders list above in between Adam and Seth and this "mystery" is solved!

1. Adam 13. Arphaxad
2. Abel 14. Cainan
3. Seth 15. Shelah
4. Enosh 16. Eber
5. Cainan 17. Peleg
6. Mahalalel 18. Reu
7. Jared 19. Serug
8. Enoch 20. Nahor
9. Methuselah 21. Terah
10. Lamech 22. Abraham
11. Noah 23. Isaac
12. Shem 24. Jacob
