Item description for The Names of Jesus (Threshold Bible Study) by Stephen J. Binz...
Overview The essential purpose of reading the Scriptures is to know a person--Jesus Christ--more personally and intimately. Knowing the names of Jesus allows us to establish a closer and fuller relationship with him. Though no single name or title of Jesus can encompass the fullness of who he is, together they express his very nature and person. They express and convey all his saving deeds. The more we know about his names, the more we will understand what he has done for us and what he still can do for us. We reflect on the names of Jesus for this reason: every name that he bears is a blessing that he shares.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Names of Jesus?
Knowing the names of God is knowing oneself Jun 27, 2007
Extraordinary is the word that best describes this one of a series introduction to the common yet little used names in addressing God in unceasing prayer. The authors' questions with each title are penetrating, drawing the student-reader into deep contemplation to simply answer some of the questions, none of which is black and white. It isn't a book that one can brisk through as each question calls a halt before the reader is able to continue. The one who pursues the challenge will find this exercise of the human spirit life-changing.
Inclusive Look at the Names of Jesus in Scripture May 7, 2007
Wonderful to use for group study or personal use. I have used it for both. Very insightful.
Unique and Satisfying Approach to Bible Study Aug 8, 2004
This work is part of the Threshold Bible Study Series, designed to increase awareness and understanding of the bible and enrich the reader's spiritual life. The 30 lessons are divided into six sessions with suggestions for individual and group study, including facilitator notes. Each three-page lesson consists of two relevant scripture passages, and includes the author's reflection, two or more discussion questions, space for making notes, and a prayer. In about 100 pages, the author introduces Jesus under such names as the Carpenter, Rabbi, Prince of Peace, the Good Shepherd, the True Vine, King of the Jews, Bridegroom, among others. This unique approach to bible study is tailor made for those who are pressed for time yet wish to deeper their knowledge of the Word of God.
