And by “His” I mean Jesus’. And it’s not just “Jesus.”
Do you know Jesus? The two questions are quite related. Can we say we know Jesus if we don’t know His names? and even know that there is a name we don’t know?
The scene in heaven seen by John is most impressive; conquering and victorious Jesus. As impressive as Jesus’ appearance are the names by which He is called and known.
His name is called “Faithful and True” (v. 11). “He has a name written that non one knows but Himself” (v. 12). “[T]he name by which he is called is The Word of God” (v. 13). “[H]e has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords” (v. 16).
To know Jesus better, I must spend some time in consideration of and seeking to know the names by which He is called.
