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.

  • Evang. Ogueri chioma Globalshowers Evangelistic Ministry for verse 21
    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 for verse 21
    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 !!!!
