Colossians 4:11 (KJV) A New Name and Testimony

Colossians 4:11 (KJV)
And Jesus, which is called Justus, who are of the circumcision. These only are my fellowworkers unto the kingdom of God, which have been a comfort unto me.
It appears that the name Jesus was common among the Jews in that first century. It likely reflected the desire of the Jews. Their longing for millennia had been for the coming of the Saviour.
Then He came.
The promise of God was fulfilled. The longing, at least in those who had received Him, had been satisfied. The Saviour had come and those who knew Him had their sins forgiven and were made righteous, justified in God’s sight.
Many people changed their names in those days. For example Saul of Tarsus became Paul. This man named Jesus was called Justus and the change became an eternal testimony of the work Christ does.
In Christ our longing for salvation is satisfied and we are made just before God.
