These reflections are about the names of Jesus Christ. In searching the scriptures I found out early on in my faith that our focus should be on the names of Jesus Christ. God the Father and God the Holy Spirit have given God the Son, Jesus Christ, ultimate authority, kingdom and dominion over all human beings and creation. For sometime now I’ve prayed to God to give me grace to write and reflect about the names of Jesus Christ. My passion began simply by reading the gospel and epistles of John. I read many books both in Amharic and English - literary and academic. I’ve written extensively about my library metadata but the bible is my favourite book of all.
When I read Paul’s message to Ephesians, I noted intentional repetition of the name of Jesus Christ. I learnt a lot from Paul’s writing and I’m trusting the Holy Spirit of God to give me knowledge, understanding and wisdom to write about the precious names of Jesus Christ. I also learnt a great deal from the writings and teachings of C.H. Spurgeon, John Piper, C.S Lewis, John MacArthur, R.S Sproul and several other writers that the focus should be the names of Jesus Christ and the glory of God alone. As I write this book, I aim to use the bible as my main source and I simply bring into FOCUS the names of Jesus Christ.
