Names of Christ Tree

In the scriptures we read of many different names for Christ. It is wonderful to remember the innocent babe born in a stable, but even more important to think of the life and mission of Christ. The names for Christ found in the scriptures help us understand the breadth and meaning of His gift to us.

Our children helped pick out some of the names and we wrote down the name with the corresponding scripture on red paper ornaments and used red satin ribbon to hang them with. They are gathered in a basket and each morning we will read the scripture and hang an ornament on a small, simple tree. Here are the names and scriptures that we use, but there are so many others that are beautiful as well.

Emmanuel -Isa. 7:14
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God -Isa 9:6
Prince of Peace -Isa 9:6
Messiah -Dan 9:25
Redeemer-Isa. 59:20

Lord -Matt. 28:6
The Bread of Life -John 6:35
Messenger of the Covenant -Mal. 3:1
The Chosen of God -Luke 23:35
