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.

  • A disciple
    It is very great and righteous how David took care of Bathsheba after all the evil that he had done to her and her husband. What David had done, no doubt made him feel horrible about himself for ever after, but it did not cause him to despair of God's love and abilities. There are innumerable mysteries of God's great mercies toward all of us, and about His willingness to grant us a changed life!
  • Irene123
    V. 6 - " ..... of her that had been the wife of Uriah ..... "; Bathsheba is 'noted' here, but not by name possibly because she was with David BEFORE her husband died ..... ?
  • Francisco Carlos Martins
    It's a beautiful book because , bring to us the unique son of the Lord ; Jesus of course !
