We know that Jesus is God’s son, but did you know he has many other names and responsibilities in the Bible?
Before God created the earth, animals and humans, He created a very special spirit being called the “Word,” also known in Greek as the “Logos.” This was Jesus’ name when he was in heaven with God before the world was created.
Isaiah prophesied about his birth, giving him beautiful titles (Isaiah 9:6) like “Wonderful Counselor” and “Prince of Peace.”
John records two other names for him: (1:41 NIV) “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ).”
In the Bible, he is represented by many pictures, including a shepherd, the lamb of God, a lion, a door and the light of the world. John says (15:12-15 ESV) Jesus is called our friend if we follow his teachings of living a life of sacrifice and love.
He also has the title “Lord of lords” and “King of kings.” Revelation says, (17:14 NIV) “They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”
Acts says, (10:36 NIV) “You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, announcing the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all.”
Eventually, everyone will acknowledge that Jesus is our Lord. Phillipians (2:9-11 NIV) says, “Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, … and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
So, what are some other names for Jesus? Just to name a few, we have the Word, the Logos, a lamb, Wonderful Counselor, Prince of Peace, King of kings, Lord of lords and Lord of all. How many more can you find in the Bible?
