There are over 360 names and titles for Jesus Christ recorded in the Bible. Many of the names of Jesus are descriptive of His person while at the same time providing information concerning His purpose for coming to this earth. John's conclusion as to the Person of Jesus Christ is given in John 1:34 - And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God (John 1:34). The purpose in His coming to this earth is given in John 1:29 - Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. While the name or title Lamb of God is peculiar, it clearly reveals that Jesus Christ is the Messiah prophesied in the Old Testament, God's Son, Who came into world as the Great Sacrifice for sin. This was John's testimony.
