Names of Jesus Advent Calendar
What is Advent?
“Advent is the period of four Sundays and weeks before Christmas (or sometimes from the 1st December to Christmas Day!). Advent means ‘Coming’ in Latin. This is the coming of Jesus into the world. Christians use the four Sundays and weeks of Advent to prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas.” – WhyChristmas.com
What is an Advent Calendar?
I did a little research and found this great explanation of Advent that I thought I’d share with you.
The word “Advent” is derived from the Latin word adventus, meaning “coming,” which is a translation of the Greek word parousia. Scholars believe that during the 4th and 5th centuries in Spain and Gaul, Advent was a season of preparation for the baptism of new Christians at the January feast of Epiphany, the celebration of God’s incarnation represented by the visit of the Magi to the baby Jesus (Matthew 2:1), his baptism in the Jordan River by John the Baptist (John 1:29), and his first miracle at Cana (John 2:1). During this season of preparation, Christians would spend 40 days in penance, prayer, and fasting to prepare for this celebration; originally, there was little connection between Advent and Christmas.Christianity.com
How Do You Use An Advent Calendar?
The point of the Names of Jesus Advent calendar is not to countdown, but rather to count up towards the days before Christmas.
The calendar windows or days reveal an image, Bible verse, or a portion of a story (such as the story of the Nativity of Jesus). Sometimes, the Advent windows or days also have Christian prayer printed on it, which Christians incorporate as part of their daily Advent devotions.

I created a 30 Names of Jesus Scripture writing plan. Take one passage of scripture for each day in December, or any time of the year you want to focus on the names/titles of Christ, and let these scriptures sink deeply into your heart and mind and help you draw closer to God. A better understanding of who Christ is and what titles God gives to His Son is an awe-inspiring journey and study. This is a great Names of Jesus Advent Calendar for the whole family.
