Free Study Guide for Begg & Ferguson’s Name above All Names

Name Above All Names Study Guide CoverWe’re pleased to share with you this study guide companion to Name Above All Names by Alistair Begg and Sinclair Ferguson, put together by our friends at Truth for Life.

Containing seven sessions to help you study the Bible’s multi-faceted portrayal of Christ’s identity and ministry, this study guide can be used for small groups or personal reflection alongside Name Above All Names. Each session includes four parts:

  1. Getting Started – a quote from the book with an introductory question
  2. Key Scriptures – key Bible verses referenced in the chapter
  3. Going Deeper – questions to help you process the main ideas of the chapter
  4. Giving Praise – a poem, hymn, or verse that can be committed to memory and incorporated in worship.

The opening words of Name above All Names summarize the impetus behind this book and study guide which we commend to you:

Jesus Christ has been given the name above all names. The names
assigned to him begin in Genesis and end in Revelation. Taken together
they express the incomparable character of Jesus Christ our Savior and
Lord. Reflecting on them better prepares us to respond to the exhortations
of Scripture, to focus our gaze upon him, and to meditate on how great he is.
