Whenever I, or one of my high school basketball teammates made a basket in a game, we would hear the bellowing voice of an older faithful fan yell, “More, more!”
I can still hear the passion behind his words as I take a closer look at Jesus: his life, character, and mission. Jesus was, and is, so much more than just a great man and teacher. He is Light, Hope, The One Who Sets Us Free, and so much more.
Ten More Names and Titles the Bible Ascribes to Jesus
Lamb of God – “The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29
Light of the World – “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
Lion of the Tribe of Judah – “Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.” Revelation 5:5
Lord of All – “For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11
Mediator – “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” 1 Timothy 2:5
Messiah – “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ).” John 1:41
Mighty One – “Then you will know that I, the Lord, am your Savior, your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.” Isaiah 60:16
One Who Sets Free – “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:36
Our Hope – “…Christ Jesus our hope.” 1 Timothy 1:1
Peace – “For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility,” Ephesians 2:14
If you don’t know Jesus by these names, why not ask Him to reveal Himself more to you?

One of my favourite hymns since being born again by Grace almost 24 years ago, a hymn that i love to sing and would always chose when given a choice – “More about JESUS would i know, more of HIS grace to others show, more of HIS saving fullness see, more of HIS love who died for me. MORE, MORE about JESUS.”
A servant of JESUS CHRIST
