25 Powerful Names Of Jesus
Although this list contains 25 powerful names of Jesus, the very first to appear in the New Testament is the name Jesus. It’s not a coincidence that the name Jesus means savior. What a beautiful name with meaning and power.
Regardless of the name you most know Jesus by, it’s important that you remember that above all Jesus is God. When you refer to Jesus, you refer to God himself.
