The Names of Jesus

In this section Jesus is introduced to the believer by the choice of his name (1.21, 23). The first name we are introduced to is Jesus which means Jehovah saves. He came to do what his name means. In doing so, he brought to himself a people which Matthew identifies in two ways: my church (16.18), and a people (21.43). More will be discovered by you when we address these parts of Matthew.

The second name we are introduced to is the name Immanuel (v. 23). This name means God with us. The last words of Jesus recorded in Matthew (28.20) indicate this very idea. God, in Jesus, will never leave you.
