The Many Names of Jesus

A dozen years ago, I made up a list of 50 names of Jesus (there are others but I only took 50) and typed them, along with their Scripture reference, on nice 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of parchment paper and framed them for Christmas gifts. Each name was typed in a different font. I'm not able to do that here, but you can get the idea. I will list the names I used. Feel free to copy them and use your creativity to do something with them if you like with your word processing program. I titled mine "And Thou Shalt Call His Name" and at the bottom in small print I put "Fifty name of Jesus taken from the King James Version of The Holy Bible" and "Merry Christmas 1997 from Bob & Jacque Stager"

(If you see any errors here, please let me know.
I don't have it saved on my new computer so I just quickly retyped this.)

That is one of the most beautiful and personal gifts I have ever seen. I happen to have something quite similar hanging on my was a gift I gave my mother, and when she passed I hung it up in my home. I always love to read those precious names!

Jacquelyn said...

How precious Pat that you have that wall hanging to remind you of your mother. I love taking the time to think of all the different names and titles of our Lord, and contemplating what they mean. Especially at Christmastime!

Rose said...


Love that idea. You know if we keep hanging around each other, we could become really creative Thanks for sharing that lovely idea.
Hugs, have a blessed day!

Oh, I looked right away to see if you had "Wonderful Counselor," which has got to be one of my very favorite names for Jesus...and sure enough, there it was right off!!! What an intriguing list!!! Fantastic, really!

Jacquelyn said...

Rose, LOL! I'll never be as creative as you, with all your artistic talent...sadly none of my dad's rubbed off on me! I feel like I'm sharing a lot of stuff from the past, but they all have meaning and part of the Christmas mystique is remembering things that have given us joy. The particular year I did this, was the year God saved me from the scourge of ovarian cancer. I was so grateful for my healing that I made these for the close friends that had prayed for me...and hand delivered them.

Jacquelyn said...

Penni, aw, "Wonderful Counselor" is truly one of my favorite names of Jesus as well. To think that we have Him to cheer and to guide us through all of life's's beyond comprehension, but I'm so grateful!
