THE NAME OF JESUS
March 25, 1990
I. THE BACKGROUND OF THE NAME, "JESUS."
Jewish name called by his parents was "Yeshua" or "Joshua."
In Greek trade language his parents would have called him "Jesus."
* Jesus is the Greek form of the Hebrew name Joshua.
"Joshua" meant "Jehovah the Savior."
Jesus means "Jehovah the Savior" and when applied to our Lord it means, "He is Jehovah,
the Savior." His person: "saves" His work: "Savior"
Matthew 1:18-25 is the biblical passage that verifies His person and His purpose.

a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name
Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Then Joseph being raised from
sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: and
knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name
JESUS WAS HIS NAME.

"For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord."
