The Way The Truth The Life Mar 27, 2005
Thou shalt call his name Jesus; for he shall save his people from their sins. (Matthew 1:21)
Throughout the Bible, Jesus has many names. He is called the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star, King of Kings, Son of Man and the Rose of Sharon.
If you love the words of Christ, then this book will explain who He is and why more than 300 names reveal an intimate portrait of a man who gave his life for the sins of the world.
Each name also has devotional prayers and could be used to enrich your devotional time. The names have been classified into:
1. Literal Functions - prophet, priest, king 2. Metaphorical Functions - Shepherd, bread of life 3. Poetic Functions - lily of the valley or morning star
The names in this book originated from the King James Version, but the author has added alternative names from the NIV for those unfamiliar with the KJV. This can be helpful because the KJV uses the word "Daysman" and the NIV uses "Arbitrator." The main headings are the KJV words and then there is a note at the end of each section if there is a word change in the NIV.
Even if you have been reading about Jesus since you were a small child, there is a wealth of information here you may have never considered. I was especially interested in the "bundle of Myrrh" comments. There is a beautiful story about a traveler who is refreshed by wild jasmine. The connection is then made with a bundle of myrrh. Myrrh is actually a fragrance/essential oil that makes you more introspective, encourages expression and exalts the spirit.
