In this Advent and New Year series we look at all the titles which were use of Jesus, from the time of his birth to his days as a toddler in Egypt. Through these ten names – The Word, The Son of David, The Son of Abraham, The Son of the Most High, Jesus, Immanuel, Christ The Lord, King of the Jews, Consolation of Israel, God’s Son – we will grow in our understanding of the importance of the work of Jesus in our lives. As a wider purpose we will discover that there is a Name for every moment we are going through and that God’s Name is all that we need.
Part 1 - The Word
In the beginning was the Word the Word gave light. When Jesus, who is the Word, came to the world He also brings light that shines into the darkness of our lives. We keep that Word shining by spending time in the Scriptures.
