“God exalted Jesus to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name.”
What is known about God is most fully known through Christ. The following quotes support this thought.
“God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ” (2 Cor 4:6).
“The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven” (Heb 1:3).
[The Lord Jesus Christ] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. . . . In Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ (Col 1:15 2:9-10).

Luis de Leon describes the all-encompassing nature and name of Christ this way:
He himself is at the same time the priest and the sacrifice, the shepherd and the pasture, the doctor and the doctrine, the advocate and the judge, the reward and the distributor, the guide and the road; the physician, the medicine, riches, light, protection, and the consolation, He Himself, and He alone. In Him we have joy in sadness, discernment in doubt; in danger and desperation we find protection and health. (The Names of Christ; Luis de Leon; 107)
As Christ is a source or rather is an ocean which holds in itself all that is sweet and meaningful that belongs to man, in the same way the study of his person, the revelation of the treasure, is the most meaningful and dearest of all knowledge … and the goal at which all the actions and thoughts of the Christian aim. (Ibid., 39)
The above list represents 200 names of Jesus.
