THE NATURE, THE NAMES AND THE TITLES OF THE LORD JESUS-CHRIST:

We have already seen the prophecies about the coming of the Messiah in all books of the Hebrew Bible. Thus, as Son of YHWH and Son of man, He was dead on the Cross for our sins, but He is risen from the death at the third day. He ascended to Heaven and He is seated at the right hand of the Lord YHWH.

Moreover, the Lord Jesus Christ is the one who has the largest number of names and titles in the history of the world. He is different from all the world leaders. He is different from all religious leaders. He is different from the greatest thinkers in the history of mankind. He lived in a simple condition of live, but He is the one who has the largest number of followers for centuries.

As Son of YHWH, the Messiah, the Savior, and the Redeemer, he has preached the Good News to the poor, he has saved many people and he has done miracles : He cure lepers and sicks, he give sight to the blind, he unplug the ear of the deafs, he make the lame to walk, he bless many people, he resurrect deads, in the name of His Father the Lord YHWH the Creator of the Universe, since more than two thousand years until the present times and in the future.
