    Thanks for the sharing.

    Even till today the Jews don’t believe that Jesus Christ is the Savior. While many believe in Jesus, they don’t believe that He is the One True God.

    I am wondering if you too believe that Jesus if the One True God? Because your list of names clearly and simply proves that Jesus Christ is the Almighty God.

    I believe because the bible tells us so. If you are interested, please check out our website at http://www.tjc.org 🙂

    Hey Jessie,

    I had the honor of meeting some of the messianic Jews who believe that Jesus is their Lord and Savior. I learnt valuable insights from them, especially from a Jewish perspective on their customs mentioned in the bible. I have written some post which I think is really helpful like A Father’s Sorrow, Lamb of God and Jesus Jewish Carpenter.

    I believe the time will come when ALL Jews will come to believe that Jesus, Yeshua is their Messiah they all had been waiting for.

    For the record, I do believe Jesus is the One.
    Blessed reading…

    Read these names of Jesus and let His ability to love and care for you sink in. Then dive in. You will never understand what you are missing in life if you dont. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose.
    Like Aslan the Lion in The Chronicals of Narnia, try to invision Jesus’s character. God is available- just dive in.

    In Him,
    Bo

  4. TRY Yahushua!
    Yah is our deliverer!
    or
    Yah will Save Us!

    The Messiah was a Hebrew Yisraelite and had a Hebrew name not Greek or Span.
    Jesus means nothing in Hebrew
    while sus does but Horse is not look few while on by the Scriptures now is it.

    Yahushua Ha Messiah Name of Names!

    Compliments!

    In the person’s name of the Lord of Lords.

    I am Memo Martinez. Whilst probing on-line for websites that contained the names of Jesus, I found your website with it’s abundant titles of Jesus. I am seeking authorization, given that I noticed the patent (copyright) pictogram attached to your website, to utilize the names of Jesus from your website that I might bless others, in particular those who are unacquainted with the splendorous numerous titles of our Savior.

    May the God of Israel bless your going in and your going out.

    You might perhaps email me at:
