Sunday Seed Thoughts: Names of Jesus

“The name of Jesus is not so much written as plowed in the history of the world,” once wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson.

When the angel appeared to Joseph and said Mary had conceived a child of the Holy Spirit, He instructed, “You shall call his name Jesus. For he shall save his people from their sins.” Yet, there are over 200 names, titles, and designations for Jesus in the Bible that attest to his greatness, prominence, and Preeminence.

Today, as we come to honor Jesus, think about a few of these meaningful metaphors.

    Brother Ken, I commend you highly for citing all these titles of Jesus. Aside from Jehovah God, NOBODY else past, present, or future could possibly merit this much lauding. Way to go, brother!
