What is “the name above all names” that Jesus Christ inherited and given to?

Last updated on August 12, 2023

Our Lord Jesus Christ inherited and given “the name above all names”. But what exactly is this name?

Some would argue that “the name above all names” that was given to Jesus is the name “Jesus”.

Friends, I am sorry to tell you but this is the wrong understanding of the Holy Scriptures.

Now, let’s look at a few verses from the Holy Scriptures about this subject.

Jesus Exalted

Philippians 2:9-11 Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name above all names, that at the name of Jesus, every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

According to the preceding verses, Jesus was exalted to the highest place and was given the name above all names so in the name of Jesus all knees should bow.

Now, the following verses also tell us that Jesus inherited this name and it goes on to point out that he has become the Son of God.

The Son Of God

Hebrews 1: 1-5 In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.

For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father”?

Or again, “I will be his Father, and he will be my Son”?

So, according to these verses, the name that Jesus inherited is the name “Son” of God.

The Name Above All Names

Therefore, “the name above all name” is “The Son of God”.

There is so much power in The Son of God that now in the name of Jesus, who has become The Son of God, all knees should bow.

That is my short explanation for the name above all names.


The name above all names that Jesus inherited and given to is the name “The Son Of God”.

Until next time, God bless you, friends!
