Lord Jesus

The phrase “Lord Jesus” states that Jesus (Yeshua‘) is no ordinary person; He is Lord. The word “Lord” has a wide range of uses. It can be a simple respectful “Sir” or a more formal, “Master.” But the New Testament also uses “Lord” of God. This name of Jesus declares that He is God. The combination only occurs twice in the gospels, perhaps because the disciples only became properly aware of Jesus’ lordship after the resurrection.
