6. "The Holy One", "The Just", and the "Prince of Life".
In Peter's second sermon after the Ascension of Jesus, besides
references to Jesus as the Prophet Messiah, and with OT quotes, he
uses the three phrases above for the Lord Jesus Christ--"The Holy
One", "The Just", and the "Prince of Life"; and we naturally ask the
question as to from whence did these three names for Jesus come?
The answer for our continuing research in the total Bible on the subject
and name for the Lord Jesus Christ, including how we have come in
Christianity today to settle primarily on "Lord Jesus Christ" in the NT,
must lead us back to the OT in searches for those names. Previously in
this series we have used OT quotes in the NT for references, but also
there are many references from the OT not full quotes.
| THE NAME Above All Names
The Bible makes it abundantly clear that the name of "Jesus" is the
name above all names.
"Therefore God has highly exalted Him and given Him a name
which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every
knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth,
and that every tongue should confess that Jesus is Lord, to the
glory of God the Father." (Philippians 2:9)
Some may think that "Jesus" was only the name given by Joseph
and Mary at birth; not so, that NAME came straight from God in
heaven through "an angel of the Lord", saying, "...and you shall
call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their
sins". (Matthew 1:21)
