Bible commentary

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.

Discussion for Matthew 1

    Am just touched in the spirit after reading the history linage of our lord Jesus christ.Glory be to God.be blessed.
  • Gerson Barrientos
    God's plan is perfect. The birth of Jesus show that He is 100% God and 100% man. That is why sin was never found on HIM. Jesus Christ is purely legit to believe on. Everything that refer to the genealogies, represent that Jesus is savior, our Lord. For instance, Ruth is mentioned in the genealogy because she was a gentile, but she decide to follow God, which represent redemption of the sinners.

    The birth of Christ was no accident, but rather a plan by God to redeem man.
    Praise be to God for coming to get us.
  • Adrianne
    It's astonishing that the bloodline of CHRIST is listed through the lineage of Joseph when he had not a drop of his blood in his veins. That's why it's important for us to know as Christians our adoption into the family of GOD is all about the FATHER.
