Jesus the Son
Jesus is God's only begotten Son, the first-born over creation, the Son of God, Man, and David. That puts Him in a unique position to save us.
Day One: "Only Begotten Son"
There are some 200 names and titles of Christ found in the Bible. Following are some of the more prominent ones, organized in three sections relating to names that reflect the nature of Christ, His position in the tri-unity of God, and His work on earth on our behalf...
Day Two: "First-Born over Creation"

Day Six: "Son of David"
Seventeen verses in the New Testament describe Jesus as the "son of David." But the question arises, how could Jesus be the son of David if David lived approximately 1,000 years before Jesus?...
