Dec.29: Names of Jesus–Author and Finisher


Author and Finisher
looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2

The Greek word for Author is archēgos, which means a chief leader: author, captain, prince, one that takes the lead in anything and thus affords an example, a predecessor in a matter, pioneer
The Greek word for Finisher is teleiōtēs, which means a perfector, one who has in his own person raised faith to its perfection and so set before us the highest example of faith,
These words describe Jesus perfectly.  He is our perfect example of faith.  He is the beginning and the end of our faith.  “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”   Revelation 1:8
We praise You Lord Jesus as the Author and Finisher of our faith.
