Jehovah the Savior

Matthew 1:21—“And she will bear a son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins.”

Note 1 on Jesus says: “Jesus is the Greek equivalent of the Hebrew name Joshua (Num. 13:16), which means Jehovah the Savior, or the salvation of Jehovah. Hence, Jesus is not only a man but Jehovah, and not only Jehovah but Jehovah becoming our salvation. Thus, He is our Savior. He is also our Joshua, the One who brings us into rest (Heb. 4:8; Matt. 11:28-29), which is Himself as the good land to us.”

Cross-reference “b” on Jesus directs us to these verses:

Luke 2:21: “And when eight days were fulfilled to circumcise Him, His name was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb.”

Acts 4:12: “And there is salvation in no other, for neither is there another name under heaven given among men in which we must be saved.”

Philippians 2:9-10: “Therefore also God highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, that in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth.”

1 Timothy 2:5: “For there is one God and one Mediator of God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”
