Faithful and true

Faithful and true is one of the names of Jesus Christ. It occurs in this form only once, in the book of Revelation as a name for Jesus, the rider of the white horse. A longer form “Faithful and true witness” is connected to another name, “the Amen.” To say that Jesus is the Amen means that He confirms and establishes the will of God. To say that Jesus is a faithful and true witness reinforces the name “Amen.” Jesus (Yeshua‘) is faithful and true to the will of God for His people.
