Beloved Names of God...series ... Messiah

 

Messiah

 
He first found h is own brother Simon, and said to him,
"We have found the Messiah" (which is translated, the Christ).
John 1:41 NKJV
 
  • Name of God the Son
  • The title "Messiah" is used twice in the book of Daniel and twice in the book of John
  • Messiah means "Redeemer" or "God's Anointed." The designation "Christ" is a translation of Messiah
  • Andrew, who had been a follower of John the Baptist, heard Jesus referred to as the Lamb of God. Then John told his own disciples his time was ending and they should follow Jesus. This was significant enough for Andrew to risk ridicule by telling his hardheaded brother, Peter, that the man was the Messiah.
 
Andrew and Peter were both fisherman; but while Andrew was in the desert with John the Baptist, his brother Peter was at work, possibly supporting a family and certainly supporting a sick mother-in-law. Two different attitudes. But when Andrew found a man who would change everything for them, the very first person he told was his brother.
Have you told your brothers and sisters of the Good News of the Messiah?
