The New Testament gives us many names for Jesus Christ, each of which gives us an aspect of His character, His majesty, and His unique status as our Savior. There are three names for Jesus Christ that are not mentioned frequently and are found together in only one book in the Bible. These names reveal to us a side and dimension of Jesus Christ that we need to understand, appreciate, rely on, and follow as He leads us through this life into His Kingdom.
