"And when eight days had passed, before His circumcision, His name was then called Jesus, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb."
Mary and Joseph's baby is to be named "Jesus". Jesus is a transliteration of the Hebrew name Joshua, which means Jehovah is Salvation. An appropriate name for the Son of God; the One who came to save. Jesus is called by many other names as well. God, Messiah, Lord, Master, Savior, King of Kings, Lion of Judah, Lamb of God, just to list a few. It's been said there are over 700 titles and names for our Lord in the Bible. One of them, Immanuel, tells us that He is with us -- always present. And if we have received Him as Lord, then His Holy Spirit lives in us and we are never alone. What comfort this truth brings as we journey this earth.
