    The name of Jesus is all too often overlook when teaching kids about the bible. We normally stick to bible verses, bible stories, and parables. But, teaching deeper meanings is the bible can start your Sunday school kids into a life long journey of discovering all that the bible has to offer us as believers.

    Below is a Sunday school lesson submitted to us by Jonathan Garner. Feel free to share it with anyone you feel will benefit from it - everyone!!! You can read more about Jonathan at the end of this lesson.

    Jesus Christ. It’s a name everyone knows. Unfortunately, unless we’re in a church, it’s a name we’re more likely to hear abused than glorified. Even as Christians we may sometimes forget just how special His name is.

    Here are seven important facts to remember about Jesus’ name.

    1. Jesus means “the Lord saves.” And truly He does save, for though He is God, He came to earth as a man and took away our sins on the cross.

    2. The name of Jesus was chosen by God, His Father. God picked a name to perfectly describe what Jesus would accomplish with His life: Salvation for all believers.

    3. Jesus is a Greek version of the Hebrew name Joshua. Just as the noble Joshua led the Israelites to the peace of the Promised Land, so Jesus leads us to the peace of salvation.

    4. Jesus’ name should never be used irreverently or as a curse. It is the name of the Almighty God who deserves our worship, and the name of the Savior who suffered so much for us.

    5. Everyone who has ever lived will bow before the name of Jesus. While some people misuse and even despise Jesus’ name, the Bible prophesies that will one day change.

    6. Jesus is the only name by which we will be saved. No other religious figures have brought salvation, and no other gods exist. But Jesus is real, and He is mighty to save.

    7. Jesus is the name of Someone we can know personally. It’s not merely the name of a historical figure who lived long ago. Jesus loves us. He is with us now, and He will never leave us.
