If you have been reading my posts the past couple of months, you’ll notice I’ve been focusing on the different names of God that emphasize His character. With Easter around the corner, I thought it would be fitting to zoom in on Jesus’ names and titles.
The Bible is filled with many references to who Jesus is: His life, His mission, His Lordship. Here are 10 of those names and titles, along with verses from God’s Word.
Almighty One – “…who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8
Alpha and Omega– “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” Revelation 22:13
Advocate– “My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father–Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.” 1 John 2:1
Author and Perfecter of Our Faith – “Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2
Authority–“Jesus said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” Matthew 28:18
Bread of Life–“Then Jesus declared, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.’” John 6:35
Beloved Son of God– “And behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:17
Bridegroom–“And Jesus said to them, “Can the wedding guests mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast.” Matthew 9:15
Chief Cornerstone–“The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief corner stone.” Psalm 118:22
Deliverer – “And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.” 1 Thessalonians 1:10
I think Awesome Savior is also a fitting name. The Beloved Son of God, Alpha and Omega, gave up heaven to enter our world. He not only offers us abundant life, but also delivers us from our sin and God’s wrath.
To be continued . . . . Have a wonderful week!
