Who is Jesus, well there are many names for Him! The Bible is full of them. You can’t swing a cat without reading one.
45 So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. 46 However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural; then the spiritual. 47 The first man is from the earth, earthy; the second man is from heaven.
Paul writes that Jesus is the second Adam. Without sin and perfect. Adam was originally perfect in every way. Had he done what he was suppose to do, he would have stayed perfect but alas he did not.
Jesus on the other hand was perfect. He was born perfect for he was not just a mortal man. He is God made flesh!
Allies, the Christian band, calls Jesus “The Last Chance Cafe.” For He is the last chance.
“NO man comes before the Father but by me!” John 14:6
5 And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He *said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” 6 Then He said to me, “[a]It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost.”
Jesus is the First and the Last.
White Heart calls Jesus “The Beat Of A Different Drum”
Rock And Roll Worship Circus calls Jesus “The Undiscovered”
Carman calls Jesus “The Champion”
C.S. Lewis calls him “Aslan”
So many names of the Loving Saviour!
John calls Him the Advocate (1 John 2:1) He also calls Him the Word (John 1:1). Matthew calls Him, Beloved of God (Matthew 12:18). Mark called Him, Good Teacher (Mark 10:17). Luke calls Him, Consolation of Israel (Luke 2:25)
He is throughout all of the Old Testament. Daniel calls Him, “Ancient of Days “(Dan 7:9), David calls Him so many names. “King of Glory” (Psalms 24:7), “Chief Cornerstone”(Psalms118:22), “Most Mighty” (Psalms 45:3).
“Branch Of Righteousness” (Jer 33:15)
“Wonderful Counselor (is 9:6), Mighty God (Is 9:6), Eternal Father (Is 9:6), Prince Of Peace (Is. 9:6), Mighty One Of Jacob (Is 60:16), Man of Sorrows (Is 53:3)”
These are but a few. Look them up and get the read along points if you have them in your Bible.
Jesus has so many names that are not biblical but still so important. One person I know calls Jesus “The Love Of My Life”. Whatever you call him be it “First Love” (1 John 4: 19) to “Love of a Lifetime” or maybe the simple “Saviour”.
The names we give to the Saviour of the world is up to us. They can be biblical or not. We show our love and respect for Him when we do so. If people look at you funny, smile and whisper “Jesus is Groovy Man!”
“To God be the Glory, for in His love for us, He sent HIS Son to die for all mankind.”
Carman said it best!
“Keep Looking Up! His Coming is Nigh!”
