What's in a name? Everything. Particularly in the Bible, personal names and titles have significant meanings and often convey a wealth of information about the individual being depicted. This is most truly the case with the titles and symbols used to describe the Lord Jesus Christ. The Scriptures instruct us that the way to know God is through Christ. A proper understanding of who Jesus is lies at the very root of the Christian religion and impacts the daily life of every believer. Even Jesus used these names to teach truths regarding Himself. When He wanted people to know that there is no way to heaven but through Him, He said, "I am the Door." And when He taught how kind He is to those who follow Him, He said, "I am the Good Shepherd." When He desired to impress on minds how weak and worthless we are without Him, He speaks of Himself as the Vine, and His disciples as the branches. In AMG's
Names of Christ, James Large has compiled and interpreted more than 280 titles of and symbols for Christ. This study of the names of Christ will open the eyes of the reader to the glory of Jesus Christ and His redeeming work.
