Since the Christians initially had the Old Testament scriptures as their 'Bible' and frequently quoted from it in the New Testament, some of the names for God carry over into the New. Most frequently simply the term God is used. Jesus in referring to God calls Him Father. The New Testament in completion of the Old adds the revelation of Jesus Christ as being a name for God, as one of the divine persons in the trinity. The Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost (KJV) is also God in the New Testament and fully equal as such with the other three persons.

Other uses are references to God as the 'God of our fathers..' see Acts 3:13 and 5:30 and the 'God of Abraham and of Isaac and of Jacob..' see Acts 3:13 (these are common Old Testament usages) Acts 7:2 refers to Him as the 'God of glory.' In Luke 1:32, 35 and 76 He is referred to as 'the Highest.' Luke 1:68 terms Him 'the Lord God of Israel'.

'Lord', a frequently used Old Testament name for God is applied both to the Father in Luke 2:29 but most frequently by far it is applied to Jesus.


Light - ascribed both to the Father "God is light" and to Jesus "I am the light of the world"

Alpha and Omega, referring to God's timelessness is again ascribed to both Jesus and the Father.

Revelation 1:8 (King James Version)

8I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Revelation 1:11 (King James Version)

11Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto
Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

Revelation 1:17-18 (King James Version)

17And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:

18I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Revelation 1:17 gives us another name for God, which is simultaneously an attribute - 'the Almighty'.
