Names for God and our Glorious Lord

This article is for either a group or personal bible study on the many expressions used to describe God and our Lord. It will be done in three parts beginning with the scriptural names that are traced back to the Old Testament.


In another article I wrote about the significance of names and being careful how we name our children. At this point equal thought should be given when naming a ministry, church or building.

On a personal level it is wonderful to be able to pray to God and His Son with intimacy, calling them by special and descriptive names.
Following is a list of names, some of which you may be familiar with and others that we may only now recognise. It is my prayer that as you use this bible study you will be blessed and, bless others.

Scriptural Names for Jesus Christ


Name: Advocate – 1 John 2:1-2
Think of Jesus as our advocate with the Father.

Name: Alpha – Revelations 1:1-8; 21:1-66
Think of the Alpha programme and how it is used to reach the un-churched giving the individual a beginning in the Christian faith.

Name: Beloved – Ephesians 1:5- 9
Think about His love and moments of intimacy in worship.

Name: Bread of Life – John 6:32-35a
Remember His word to us that He is the ‘bread of life’ and those that come to Him would never go hungry.

Name: Chief Shepherd – 1 Peter 5:1-4
Think of the hymn “Loving shepherd of Thy sheep, keep Thy lamb, in safety keep; nothing can Thy power withstand, none can pluck me from Thy Hand.

Name: Cornerstone – Ephesians 2:17-20
A great hymn of the church says “Christ is our cornerstone, on Him alone we build..”

Name: Dayspring from on High – Luke 1:78-79
Think of Him as well that never runs dry.

Name: Door – John 10:7-9
Our worship leads us to Jesus Christ the door.


Name: Emmanuel – Isaiah 7:13-14; Matthew 1:18-23
God is with us.

Name: Foundation – Isaiah 28:16; Ephesians 2:19-22
”The Church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord..”

Name: Good Samaritan = Luke 10:30-33
There are many ministries that are called after this name, are they truly ‘good Samaritans’.

Name: Jehovah – [also used with Adonai which means Lord] – Isaiah 26:1-4; 40:1-3
There are many names that are used in combination with Jehovah and we will look at those later on.

Name: Rose of Sharon – Song of Solomon 2:1
I encourage the study of the Song of Solomon as a preparation for those engaged to be married, for this is a biblical love story.

Name: True Vine – John 15
Think of the tree and all the branches, leaves and roots.

Name: Wonderful – Isaiah 9:1-6
”His Name is wonderful, His Name is wonderful, His Name is wonderful, Jesus my Lord”


I pause here to allow you to drink in the scriptures given thus far. I will prepare another study that will look at some of the Hebrew names used in the Old Testament. Stay tuned and until then “Yahweh-Shalom”.
