In 2008 I did a weekly in-depth Bible study on the Hebrew Names of God. In those days I had all day everyday to dig through the tissue paper pages and volumes of commentary on my bookshelves to develop a post of this nature. These days I slide it in as I have time between family, work, domestic responsibilities and my newest passion – PAINTING.
Still, tonight as I began a series of posts on Colossians and began to consider the mysteries of God in Christ I remembered my desire to do a study on the Names of Jesus that life preempted in 2009. I believe God’s revelation of His nature and character await us in this season of study. I will be posting video blogs each week here at my personal blog, and a detailed written post at my Scripture & Prayer blog if you would like to print out and review the notes. Check back here each Monday for a new video blog and link to study notes focusing on one of the names of Jesus referenced in Scripture.
Please feel free to comment and bring your own insights to the table as we trek through the pages of our Bibles and discover Jesus through the names used to identify Him in Scripture. Let the study begin!
First name we will study: Immanuel | October 3
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. ~John 1:14 (NKJV)
