Designations of Jesus
“That at the name of Jesus, every knee should bow, of those in heaven, of those on earth, and of those under the earth.” – Philippians 2:10
Hey readers! Thanks for continuing to read! I appreciate you and your show of love!!
We’ve considered that Jesus is a historical figure, He’s also Prophet, Priest, and King. He’s much more than an ordinary human. He’s the Savior of the world! He’s a number of things to those of us who believe and to the whole world. Just like many of us have different titles, like how I’m a disciple of Christ (I’m not a ho peless person in this world; there’s hope in Christ) and I’m a lady, Jesus has different names and titles, as well. Let’s look at some of the other designations of Jesus.
