 Re: Who is JESUS?


Thank you for sharing this, what worthy meditation these names and their meanings should have in our minds. "Sanctify them by truth, [b]thy word is truth[/b]."

this might be another good resource for people to read:

 Re: The Divine Names and Titles

The Divine Names and Titles
in the New Testament.
From The Companion Bible.


This is the rendering of two Greek words: i. Kurios, and ii. Despotes; and one Aramaic, iii. Rabboni.
Kurios. Kurios means "owner" (and is so translated in Luke 19:33). It expresses the authority and lordship arising from and pertaining to ownership. Hence, while it is used of each Person of the Trinity, it is similarly used of the lower and human relationship of "master". Compare Luke 19:33.


EMMANUEL. Hebrew `Immanuel = God (El) with us (Isaiah 7:14; 8:8). Used of Christ, Matthew 1:23, being another proof of His Deity (see No. VI. i. a. 2. A. a. b.).


This is the Greek transliteration of the Hebrew Mashiah, with the same meaning, Anointed. Used twice of Christ (John 1:41; 4:25).


This is the Greek translation of the Hebrew Mashiah. See No. VIII. Christos has the same meaning, from chrio , to anoint. Hence, the Noun is used of and for the Messiah, and in the Gospels should always be translated "Messiah", as well as in the Acts, and sometimes in the later books of the New Testament

Iesous is the same as the Hebrew Jehoshua, or the abbreviated form of Joshua (compare Hebrews 4:8), and means [the] Salvation of Jehovah, or Jehovah [the] Saviour.
The name "Jesus" expresses the relation of Jehovah to Him in Incarnation, by which "He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross" (Philippians. 2:8); Who, being God, did not deem His glory a thing not to be thus relinquished (see note on "robbery", Philippians 2:6). [u][i][color=0033CC]The name "Jesus" is the name associated with "the shame" which He endured in order to "save His People from their sins" (Matthew 1:21). His People therefore never addressed Him as "Jesus", but always as "Master" (No. XIV. v) or "Lord" (VI. i. a. 3). (John 13:13,14. Luke 6:46), and so should all His people to-day; not following the example of demons (Matthew 8:29), or of His enemies, who irreverently called Him "Jesus".[/color][/i][/u]


In the combination of these two names, the former is emphatic by its position, the second being subsidiary and explanatory. In the Gospels it means "Jesus the Messiah". In the Epistles it means Jesus Who humbled Himself but is now exalted and glorified as Christ. Care should be taken to note the various readings.


This is the converse of "Jesus Christ" (XI) and denotes the now exalted One, Who once humbled Himself.


This is the Hebrew Mashiah Jehovah = Jehovah's Anointed, as in 1Samuel 24:6. Occasionally only in Luke 2:11; and with the Article = the Anointed of Jehovah, Luke 2:26.

This is the most important revelation of Christ Jesus. The revelation that the Rock is Jesus Christ and upon this Rock He will build His Church. The Church of Christ Jesus, His Body which we eat of, not as their father's manna of old and died but living meet Himself The Bread of Life by which we will live forever.

Mat 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

Mat 16:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed [it] unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

Mat 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Jhn 6:31 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.

Jhn 6:49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.

Jhn 6:58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

IN Christ: Phillip
