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.

    He came as governor over Israel, to redeem their souls, that the sacrifices had provided temporary relief, Jesus being the permanent relief from sin. And to make a way for the whole world to be reconciled.
  • Bev Thom
    I think Matthew 1 is talking about Jesus Christ the Son of the living God. He is the promised Messiah, He came to redeem us back to God.
  • Word
    Isaiah 7 verse 14 Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. Note. Immanuel means God with us! Yes, When you have seen the Son you have seen the Father. Always Pray in Christ name to the Father God always for Jesus told us to do so. Credentials, to show you believe that He died on the cross for your sins.
