Names of Jesus in the book of Isaiah

By Richard Gunther


There are at least 79 names of Jesus in the book of Isaiah


   This short list may not be complete. Readers are invited to search through the book of Isaiah for further names.

   The reason for this article: a friend of mine, during a conversation, told me quite dogmatically that there were no prophetic names of Jesus in the book of Isaiah. The Bible warns us to “prove all things”, and to “test” the prophets. The Bereans were commended because they “searched the Scriptures daily” and the gospels show us many times that certain Scriptures are fulfilled by him.
