All the Names of Jesus of Nazareth


It may surprise some to find that Jesus is actually referred to in the Old Testament as well as the New Testament of the biblical writings. What follows is as complete a list as can be formed of all the names of Jesus of Nazareth used in the Bible. Taking all the names of Jesus used in the Bible into consideration, it would ironically be quite a stretch to consider him a mere good moral human teacher.
