The name of Jesus Christ is woven through the fabric of our religious life. It is invoked daily in prayers, blessings, ordinances, and testimonies of members of the Church throughout the world. Apostles serve as “special witnesses of the name of Christ in all the world.” But what does it mean to be a witness not just of Jesus Christ, but also of His name? In His Holy Name, Elder Dallin H. Oaks explores the significance of the scriptural references to the name of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.
Using personal insight and excerpts from the standard works, Elder Oaks takes a fascinating look at the meaning of the Savior's holy name in our worship and beliefs. Truly, His holy name is a vital portion of our understanding and faith in the restored gospel. Elder Oaks recounts the words of John: “But these are written, that ye might belive that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name” (John 20:31). and, explains this modern-day Apostle, “In this context, 'his name' means His work and His plan of salvation with all of its glorious provisions for the children of God.”
