21她必生一个儿子,你要给他起名叫耶稣,因为他要把自己的子民从罪恶中拯救出来。”
21And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
21 Verse 21. JESUS] The same as Joshua, Yehoshua, from

yasha, he saved, delivered, put in a state of safety. See on

and in the preface to Joshua.



He shall save his people from their sins.] This shall be his

great business in the world: the great errand on which he is come,

viz. to make an atonement for, and to destroy, sin: deliverance

from all the power, guilt, and pollution of sin, is the privilege

of every believer in Christ Jesus. Less than this is not spoken

the New Testament, is not only that Christ might be thereby

pointed out as the Saviour, but also that Jesus might be pointed

out as the true Christ or Messiah, against the unbelief of the

Jews." This observation will be of great use in numberless places

of the New Testament. See ; ; ;
