Whether or not your family chooses to use this study of Jesus’ Names for your Advent season, it’s an enriching study to do any time of year. It will likely launch you into more of the names of Jesus and into exploring the names/titles of God the Father.
There are several appropriate devotionals to take you further:
- The Names of God: 52 Bible Studies for Individuals and Groups
by Ann Spangler (and others in her series)
- God’s Names (Children Desiring God)
by Sally Michael (a devotional for families)
As you share the verses with your children from these titles of Jesus, examine the context surrounding the references. You may wish to read more of the chapter than is indicated.

How can any study of the names of Jesus stop? Our children’s radar is now out for the names of Jesus as they come up in worship, sermons, books, and everyday conversation. I love how I am introducing them to the character and provision of our God through the study of His names.
Let us know how your study continues after your Advent season is over and how your family’s faith and discipleship has been enriched!
Have a blessed Christmas season!
