From Alpha to Omega: An Examination of Christ in Scripture
Have you ever wondered why Jesus has so many names? It’s not an accident. Each one is invaluable in helping us to understand, as best we can, the full nature of Jesus Christ.
Paul Thigpen dives deep into Scripture from Genesis to Revelation to illuminate the many names of Jesus found therein and explain how each one reveals something new and essential about Our Lord.
The Biblical Names of Jesus is like no other book. It is an engrossing trek through Scripture spanning the entire Bible, focusing on the typologies of Jesus through 18 of his unique names. You will come away with a deeper knowledge of Christ, and a fuller understanding of how the whole of the Bible points toward Jesus.
With his expert, yet accessible prose, Paul Thigpen will help you:
•Deepen your understanding of Jesus through his more familiar titles, such as Christ, Lord, Savior, Son of God, and Son of Man.
•Ponder the life-changing beauty and mystery of less-familiar names such as the Bride¬groom, Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Dawn from on High, Alpha and Omega…and how they show aspects of Jesus’ love for us, his Kingship, and His desire to lead us to heaven.
•Examine—like each brilliant facet of a diamond—the One who holds you in existence, and come to know Jesus better than ever before.
Uncover the types and prefigurements of Christ throughout Scripture…and take your personal relationship with Our Lord to a new level!
