- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
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.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).
