He Shall Be Called


Several years ago, there came into my possession a little book that had belonged to the Free Will Baptist missionary, Laura Belle Barnard. It was about the names and titles ascribed to Jesus in the Bible. I was so intrigued by the subject that I later read through the entire Bible and found for myself about 350 different names, titles, and designations for Christ.

Our Lord is so vast, so multi-dimensioned and poly-faceted that it takes all those names to describe Him, just as it would take all the colors of the spectrum to adequately paint His portrait.

When you are reading in the Bible, always keep an eye open for the precious names of our wonderful Lord. He is the Life, the Light, the Way, the Truth, the Bread of Life, the Light of the World, the Great Physician, the Rock of Ages, the Bright and Morning Star, the Man of Sorrows, the Lamb of God, the Author and Finisher of our Faith, the Captain of our Salvation, the Good Shepherd, the Holy One of Israel, the Friend Who Sticks Closer than a Brother, the Sun of Righteousness, the Desire of All Nations, the Last Adam the Savior, the Master, the Man from Heaven, the Friend of Sinners, the Prophet, the Advocate, the Door, the Rock, the Cornerstone, the King of the Jews, the Son of David, the Sure Foundation, the Redeemer, Emmanuel, Rabbi, Alpha and Omega, Lord, Jesus, Christ, the Firstborn Among Many Brothers, the Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, and the Prince of Peace.
