Glenn E. Hawkins, Evangelist

WHO IS JESUS? [3]

An angel appeared to Joseph, Mary’s husband, and told him that he was to name the child born to Mary "Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins" (Matthew 1:21). The name Jesus in Greek is equivalent to the Hebrew name Joshua. It means, "God or Jehovah saves."

Jesus is the Savior of the world. He came to seek and to save the lost (Luke 19:10). The name of Jesus is the sweetest name on earth because He brings salvation to those who will accept Him and obey His gospel. Have you accepted Him as your Savior? (more next week)
