Jesus assures His disciples He’s Immanuel in Matthew 28:20, “And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Not only is He with us, He lives in us (Galatians 2:20).
Names of Jesus
There's just something about the name—Jesus. The Name exalted above every other. The Word. The long-awaited King, spotless Lamb, and great I Am. Christ, Cornerstone, Shepherd, Servant...one title cannot begin to contain the vastness of the all-surpassing glory of Jesus.
Two millennia have passed since Jesus walked this earth, and yet people are still baffled about who He is. Is He God? Man? A good teacher? The Messiah? All of the above—or none?
In the public square, you’ll hear all kinds of opinions about Jesus. It’s been that way down through the centuries. That’s why Jesus asked the disciples a question that echoes today: “Who do you say that I am?”
Your answer to that question matters more than anything else in this life.
We hope you’ll use this series as an opportunity to draw near to Him and reflect on His promises.
In Scripture the more foundational meaning of peace is the spiritual harmony brought about by one’s restoration with God.
Calling Jesus “Lord” is a confession of belief that He is God, and loyalty to Him, and a claim to be a disciple.
Jesus Christ’s main purpose in coming to the world was to provide salvation for those who put their trust in Him. Jesus saves us from the righteous wrath of God the Father upon all who have sinned against him.
In John 10:12-18, Jesus contrasts Himself with the Pharisees, implying they don’t know or care about the people. Jesus loves each person and willingly gives up his life for people of all nations.
By saying “I am the bread of life,” Jesus is saying He is essential for life—eternal life. He is also claiming deity. He invites people to place their faith in Him as their Saviour in order to live and be truly satisfied.
Jesus used this title to both reveal and conceal who He was. He reveals Himself as truly human and a lowly servant (Mathew 8:20; 9:6), identifying with us in our weakness and suffering for us (Mark 8:31).
Time does not change Jesus. Rest in His unchanging character. As the source of life, Jesus does not need anything. Depend on Him for everything.
The slaying of the Passover lamb pictured Christ’s atoning death on the cross for the sins of the world as Christ’s applied blood causes God’s judgment to pass over sinners and gives life to believers (Romans 6:23).
