Names of Jesus A-Z

Jesus Christ

The Scriptures are replete with names and descriptions of Jesus Christ. He described Himself as the Alpha and Omega, which would be similar in English to saying that He is the A through Z. So in celebration of Christ, here are His names A through Z.



Jesus is all powerful; He can command the elements and the animals. He has power over death itself.


In the parable of the ten virgins, Jesus is the bridegroom. Will we be spiritually prepared to join Him at the feast?

End of the Law

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus taught that he fulfilled the Law of Moses the ancient Israelites practiced.


Jesus is God. Along with God the Father and the Holy Ghost, Jesus Christ makes up the Godhead.

Quickening Spirit
