Friend of Sinners [Name Above All Names]

NAAN-Series-GFX_App-Wide.pngThis past weekend at Eastbrook Church we began a new series entitled “Name Above All Names.” In this series, which flows out of our Christmas celebration of Jesus as the light of the world, we want to focus on Jesus, learning more about who He is by giving attention to the titles, or names, of Jesus.

Scripture tells us that after Jesus’ death and resurrection “God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name” (Philippians 2:9). We also believe “there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must saved” (Acts 4:12). A person’s name tells us so much about them and this is true even more with Jesus. Throughout the Scripture we find different titles – or names – given to Jesus, whether in prophecy, the acclamation of others, or Jesus’ own statements about Himself. In this series after Christmas we will explore ten titles of Jesus that help us grasp key truths we need to know about who Jesus is.

This weekend we looked at Jesus as the friend of sinners in Luke 7:18-35 and Luke 5:31-32.

You can view the message video and sermon outline below. You can follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast.
