She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins. All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son and they will call him Immanuel – which means, “God with us.”
vs 21 Jesus (the Lord saves)
vs. 23 Immanuel (God with us)
Even His names were a pronouncement of His life work – Saviour, Redeemer and the radiance of God’s glory wrapped in humanity. Not a military force…GOD, with us.
