More Than a Name
Dec 01 2019 • Greg Boyd
Before a baby is born, parents flip through name books and ponder one of the first big decisions they have for their child. Will it be a family name? A name with special meaning? Conventional or unique?
Before God sent his son as a baby, he carefully selected his own names: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Prince of Peace, Everlasting Father, Immanuel.
But why these five? What do these names tell us about God, and how might the titles of Jesus speak to our biggest questions and life’s deepest mysteries? This Christmas season, join us for a 5-week series to learn what the names of Jesus reveal about him, and what they mean for all of us.
Sermons in this series:
In the Old Testament, a name is more than what someone is called. It points deeper to his or her character. In the first message of our More Than a Name Christmas series, Greg explore the context of Isaiah 9 and what it meant for Jesus to be prophesied to be a Wonderful Counselor.
