Jesus’ Superior Name

“…having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they” (Hebrews 1:4).

No one in human history is comparable to Jesus of Nazareth.

  • Only Jesus has laid aside equality with God to take the form of a bond-servant, come in the likeness of humanity, and humble Himself to the point of death (Philippians 2:6-8).

  • Only Jesus was called Immanuel—“God with us” (Matthew 1:23).

  • Only Jesus was born into this world with the mission of saving humanity by personally purging its sins (Hebrews 1:3; Matthew 1:21).

  • Only Jesus has been given a name above every name (Philippians 2:9), having been seated at God’s right hand, far above all principality, power, might, and dominion (Ephesians 1:20-21).

  • Only Jesus has the lone name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12).

  • Only Jesus has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than angels (Hebrews 1:4) and rightfully deserves obedience and praise from everyone in heaven, on earth, and under the earth (Philippians 2:10-11).

  • Only Jesus has a judgment seat that every knee will bow before and every tongue shall confess to God when each of us gives an account of himself to God (Romans 14:10-12).


There really is something about that name!
