One view:

According to The Bible Jesus Christ is not God, but God's son.

Matthew 16:16 - And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

The Bible reveals that God is Jesus' father. This is why Jesus taught his followers to pray to his Father.

Matthew 6:9 - Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

The Bible also shows what is God's name, the name of the father that has to be Hallowed.

Psalm 83:18 says - That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.

God's name is Jehovah. He is the Father of Jesus Christ and the Most High.

Another view

Christians regard Jesus Christ as God in human form. This fact pervades the whole of scripture, and it is what Jesus claimed.

We read of Jesus claiming to be God (he forgave sins, spoke in his own authority not God's, performed miracles in his own name, not God's, accepted worship, and was charged with blasphemy because he claimed to be God). We read of Jesus sending the Holy Spirit onto his disciples (not God) as comforter an guide. We read at the end of Matthew's Gospel Jesus commanding the disciples to baptise all nations in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit [Matt 28:19] In John's gospel there are further references of Jesus' divinity (John 1 as an example) as well as in Paul's letters. In Revelation we read of Jesus as judge - as part of the Godhead.

The son of a father in Biblical times meant a particular thing; that the son had all the authority and power of the father, legally and was not subservient to the father. By stating Jesus is the 'Son' of God the disciples are confirming his divine authority of the Father and his identification with the Father as God on earth - Emmanuel, 'God with us'.

Another view:But there is only one 'Almighty'. And his name is Jehovah, not Jesus.

Jesus is called a 'mighty god' but never 'ALL-mighty'. Those are 2 different Hebrew words.

The angels are also called 'god'. But certainly they are not the same as Jehovah God.

Just because someone is called a 'god', does not mean they are one-&-the-same as Jehovah God. The word 'god' is just a word, a title, that can be applied to many in addition to Almighty God.

Did Jesus believe in God?

Jesus not only believed in God but he claimed to be God in human form on many occasions. Christians believe his claims were true because of his teaching, his miracles and especially because of the resurrection when Jesus bodily rose from death to a glorified existence after he was executed. According to Christians, Jesus is the son of God. In Islam, Jesus is believed as one of the greatest prophets and one of the greatest messengers of God to mankind. So, Jesus as messenger of God, believes, for sure, in God and the only one God. === ===

What name did God give to Jesus that is above every other name?

The only biblical name that is 'above every other name' is YHWH, often pronounced Yahweh. It is the name of God that he revealed to Moses at the burning bush. Hebrew does not have past, present or future tenses so it might be translated as 'I was who I was, I am who I am or I will be who I will be.' Saying that Jesus is given the name above every other name, is a way of revealing that Jesus and God are one.
