"Blessed Be the Name of the Lord"

This Sunday morning Papi and I heard Ruben Studdard sing "Blessed Be the Name of the Lord" on the Thomas Road Live program. The song title started me thinking about other songs with the same thought and I decided to research some of those names. I found this article online with a terrific list. Hope you enjoy them and maybe lookup some of the scripture references. I realise the list is long, it just shows you the magnitude of our Savior.


Biblical Names of God
Scriptural Names for God and Jesus

Studying the names of God is one of the most uplifting Bible adventures a Christian can explore. You will learn about God's character, his nature, and how completely he cares for you.
This list presents the biblical names of God and Jesus and where they are located in Scripture. With 102 names of God represented, the list, though not exhaustive, is quite extensive.
Are you ready to dive in?
