Have you ever thought about the names and titles of Jesus?

Names of Jesus Advent Calendar

Join me in celebrating Advent this year with this Names of Christ Advent calendar. I have selected 25 advent names of Jesus for us to unwrap each day. I have designed this free printable names of Jesus Advent calendar to start on the 1st of December and end on Christmas Day, the 25th of December. Each day you will look at a card (from our printable names of Jesus) with a title of Jesus listed and a scripture verse that gives the meaning of His name. Some of the cards will have additional bible verses that you can look up to gain more clarity on each name and its meaning.

Make sure that you download and print out all the names of Jesus that are on our names of Jesus printable. You will receive a page with a list of the 25 names of Jesus and also a few pages that have each name of Jesus on a card with scripture on them on one side and a number on the other side. This makes them a fun countdown Advent calendar! Just cut on the dotted lines and then use them as names of Jesus ornaments for your Christmas home decor.

I'm not sure which way I will use these Advent cards as Christmas ornaments in my home this year. I like the idea of using a card stand to hold the cards with the numbers facing me and then each day turning them over to learn about the name of Jesus and each meaning. I also love the idea of using tiny clothespins on some string to hang like a clothesline on a wall. Then each day I can turn over the numbered card and enjoy the title of Jesus that day!

This names of Jesus calendar would be fun to do with your children too. Make it part of your daily routine and it will help keep a Christ-centered Christmas in your home.


Names of Jesus and meanings

Here is a list of the names of Jesus and their meanings. The scriptures listed are from the NIV translation of the Bible but if you click on each highlighted scripture reference, you will come to a page that will show you how it reads in another translation of the Bible. This is a great way to study scripture. It will give you more clarity on the meaning of each name of Jesus that we study.

1. Jesus - Immanuel

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14.

Immanuel means God with us. The name Immanuel appears twice in the Hebrew scriptures and once in the New Testament in Matthew 1:22-23. Immanuel means, "God with us." It is one of the most comforting and encouraging names or titles of God. You can read this short bible study on this wonderful name of Jesus HERE.

2. Jesus -Savior

She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus because he will save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21.

The name Jesus translated into Hebrew is Yeshua which means Savior, or God saves, the Lord saves. Read also the infamous bible verse John 3:16.

3. Jesus - Messiah

“Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.” Acts 2:36.

Jesus was called the Messiah in the Gospels, which means Christ. Here is one example in Mark 8:29.

4. Jesus - Light Of The World

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

This word, translated from the Greek Phos, means “to shine or make manifest the light, brightness.” God is the light that shines through us His church as the light of the world. Also, read Luke 2:32.

5. Jesus - The Word

In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1. You will also read this title of Jesus in John 1:14 and in Revelation 19:13.

Why was Jesus called the word of God?

In the Gospel of John, we read John 1:1. John also wrote, "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth." John 1:14.

Then in Revelation John says this, "He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God." Revelation 19:13.

6. Jesus - Lamb Of God

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! John 1:29.

In the Old Testament portion of the Bible “lamb” refers to a sacrifice as an atonement for sin. The Israelites also used to mark their doorposts and lintels with lambs' blood this practice started when the Israelites were held captive in Egypt and a time came when God told Pharoah to let His people go but he wouldn't. As a result, the firstborn of the Egyptians died but the Jewish people marked their doorposts with Lamb's blood so that the angel of death would pass over their homes. To this day, Jews all over the world celebrate Passover. All the sacrificial lambs that were offered in the Old Testament point to Jesus, our sacrificial Lamb in the New Testament.

7. Jesus - Bread Of Life

Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. John 6:35.

Bread of life is a title that Jesus used to describe Himself. In John chapter 6 we read of the miracle that Jesus did in multiplying 5 loaves of barley bread and two fish to feed 5000 people. This miracle satisfied the physical hunger of the people but Jesus is the bread of life that satisfies our spiritual hunger. When we choose to believe that Jesus Christ is our Savior, then He gives us His bread that will never spoil and we gain an abundant life that never ends.

8. Jesus - Good Shepherd

"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep." John 10:11.

The title for Jesus of Good Shepherd is only found in the New Testament of the Bible but when Jesus was talking with the Pharisees (religious rulers) who claimed to know the scriptures, He was pointing back to the scriptures in Isaiah that promised a coming Messiah.
