Did you know that all the names of Jesus used in the Bible add up to over 100?  We, as Christians, believe that Jesus name exudes power.  Therefore, we should know all the names of Jesus.

The many names of Jesus in the Bible have many different meanings.  Jesus name means everything to us.  Depending upon our situation, we may rely on Jesus to fill many different roles such as Savior, Protector, or Healer.  To take full advantage of the free gift of grace that God gave us through His Son, Jesus, we need to know and understand all the names of Jesus.

We will not attempt to explain all the names of Jesus here, but we would like to try to list them with where they are found in the Bible, so that you can study them yourself.  We will also delve a little deeper into a few of our favorite names of Jesus.

All the names of Jesus

All the names of Jesus.

All the names of Jesus

After Jesus was seen walking across the Sea of Galilee in Matthew 8:27, many asked, “Who is this man?  Even the winds and waves obey Him.”  Who is this Man that has over 100 names?  Let’s take a look at all the names of Jesus.

  • Advocate (1 John 2:1)
  • Almighty (Rev. 1:8; Mt. 28:18)
  • Alpha and Omega (Rev. 1:8; 22:13)
  • Amen (Rev. 3:14)
  • Apostle of our Profession (Heb. 3:1)
  • Atoning Sacrifice for our Sins (1 John 2:2)
  • Author of Life (Acts 3:15)
  • Author and Perfecter of our Faith (Heb. 12:2)
  • Author of Salvation (Heb. 2:10)

Hebrews 2:10 says, “For it became him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the author of their salvation perfect through sufferings.”

What does it mean that Jesus is the Author of Salvation?  Not only is He the one who saves us, but without Him as author, there would be no salvation at all.  He wrote the salvation contract, if you will.  Of all the names of Jesus, this is one that speaks to us on a daily basis as we are in awe of the saving Grace of God.

  • First and the Last (Rev. 1:17; 2:8; 22:13)

In Revelation 22:13, it is written, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”  Jesus is the first. Nothing predates Him.  He has always been.  When everything else is gone, Jesus will still exist.  He is the Last, the victor, the King of Heaven and Earth at the end of time.  This name, out of all the names of Jesus, can help us to understand that nothing was before Jesus, and nothing or no one can outlast Him.  This name puts life in perspective for Christians.

  • Light of the World (John 8:12)

“Again therefore Jesus spake unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that follow me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life.”  John 8:12 helps us to walk with God in our everyday life.  If we follow Jesus, we can see the path in front of us.  How terrifying it must be for people who are walking in darkness.  There are many pitfalls on the road of life that we can only avoid if we are following the Light of the World.  Of all the names of Jesus, this one guides us every day.

In Acts 3:22 it says, “Moses indeed said, A prophet shall the Lord God raise up unto you from among your brethren, like unto me. To him shall ye hearken in all things whatsoever he shall speak unto you.”  The name Prophet, out of all the names of Jesus, tells us it is essential that we as Christians listen to His every word and obey them.  Jesus spoke only the truth, and what He said will come to pass.  We can be certain of this.  Listen to Him, and don’t be deceived.
