The Names of Jesus Video

What are the meanings of the names and titles of Jesus Christ. Jesus went by many names in the New Testament. The opening chapters of the Gospels of Matthew and Luke give us special names for Jesus:

  • Jesus
  • Christ (Messiah)
  • Son of God
  • Lord
  • Emmanuel

What do each of these names of Jesus mean? The Religion Teacher explains the origin and meaning behind each name based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

Each of these names has a special significance during Advent since many of them appear in the readings leading up to Christmas.
