The "names" of Christ are certain words or titles that are used in Sacred Scripture to refer to Christ. Sometimes these names do not designate Jesus exclusively, as is the case with "shepherd" and "son of God," although they are applied to him in a very special way. There are other names that pertain only to Christ, such as "Lamb of God" and "Bread of Life."
The purpose of this little book is simply to reflect about and meditate on the names of Christ in order to draw near to him with humility, so we may know who he is and what sort of blessings the Father imparts to us through him. The fruit of such reflection should be thepraise of God for his love and for the wonders he has done and continues to do for us, gratitude for all his boundless gifts, and, as a consequence, love for him who loved us first.
Thus the reader will discover a rich and limitless prospect for learning about Christ through the Scriptures: he will see "the unsearchable riches of Christ" (Eph 3:8) and in these riches find joy, peace, and a pattern of life.
