Wesley's Notes for Matthew 1:21

1:21 Jesus - That is, a Saviour. It is the same name with Joshua (who was a type of him) which properly signifies, The Lord, Salvation. His people - Israel. And all the Israel of God.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 1:21

Mt 1:21 Thou shalt call his name JESUS. That is, Savior. The Hebrew form is Joshua; the full meaning is "Jehovah's salvation". He shall save his people. Not the Jewish nation, as Joseph probably supposed, but all who accept and follow him. From their sins. Not a temporal salvation, but from the curse of sin, condemnation and banishment from God's favor and heaven.

Evang. Ogueri Chioma Globalshowers Evangelistic Ministry's comment on 2014-12-21 00:19:00:

Jesus transforms life and gives peace to all that believes and accepts him. Absence of peace in a believer 's life shows that one has not fully yielded to the savior. Thanks be to God for his immeasurable grace to all that believes.


MockingBird's comment on 2014-10-22 09:59:23:

I Praise God that I can be saved from the sins I do. Sin has pleasure I have to be willing to be saved from those sins. If I continue in them then I am not a child of God. I must put to death that what is against God. I Praise God for Jesus Christ for through Him I have life and that more abundantly. It is hard sometimes to put to death those sins but if God knows that I have a readiness to get it done and out of my life I have found that He will work with me till I get it done and out of sight and free from sin !!!!

Kenneth's comment on 2014-02-01 17:40:06:

Jesus did all what he did to let us free from sin and we have got nothing to give him back apart from sacrificing our lifes for him by making him our personal savior.


Julia's comment on 2014-01-24 08:20:48:

Jesus came into this world to save me from my sinful ways,God gave us his only son that he soever believed in him should not perish but have eternal life.l believe in him and l gave my life to him in repantance for he suffered for my sins.he was nailed on the cross because of our sins and indeed he came to this world to bear our sins


John W.'s comment on 2014-01-24 04:48:22:

The Lord's "shall's" surely came to pass. Mary's Son was born; Joseph named the child Jesus: and Jesus has/is saving His people from their sins. Blessed truths!

For by the failure of one man ADAM sin=death entered the world and here Jesus comes to save mankind from SIN=DEATH to eternal life.
The true love of God for you and me only if we believe. John 3:16.


Pastor Kola Olugbode's comment on 2014-01-22 21:01:58:

Jesus is the saviour of mankind from sin, sting of sin, sins afflictions, bitterness and unrest from the torment of guilt, sin is a business with wages of death. Distributed to mankind from the kingdom of disobedience to God's commandments, and to enslave mankind for death. But thank God for his love that provide us Lord Jesus Christ to save us from our sins.


Toni's comment on 2014-01-22 09:29:58:

Jesus came into this world to set the captives free. Sin bounds and chains us. We are bound by the devil and are a servant to sin. But, when we turn to Jesus and ask Him to forgive us for all our sins, and truly repent, then He forgives us. We are then accepted by God and are made into new creatures - holy and acceptable to God unto good works.


MockingBird's comment on 2014-01-22 09:10:15:

Before Jesus was born :it was told Mary what His name is to be. Jesus was sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel ; They rejected him so Jesus was sent to the Gentles ;they would believe.I was a Gentile and He came to me and Praise God I believed .I am still believing today and will always. Before I formed thee I knew thee and ordained thee a prophet unto the nations (Jesus).
