Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 1:21

_ _ And she shall bring forth a son — Observe, it is not said, “she shall bear thee a son,” as was said to Zacharias of his wife Elizabeth (Luke 1:13).

_ _ and thou — as his legal father.

_ _ shalt call his name JESUS — from the Hebrew meaning “Jehovah the Savior”; in Greek JESUS — to the awakened and anxious sinner sweetest and most fragrant of all names, expressing so melodiously and briefly His whole saving office and work!

_ _ for he shall save — The “He” is here emphatic — He it is that shall save; He personally, and by personal acts (as Webster and Wilkinson express it).

_ _ his people — the lost sheep of the house of Israel, in the first instance; for they were the only people He then had. But, on the breaking down of the middle wall of partition, the saved people embraced the “redeemed unto God by His blood out of every kindred and people and tongue and nation.”

_ _ from their sins — in the most comprehensive sense of salvation from sin (Revelation 1:5; Ephesians 5:25-27).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 1:18-25.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 1:21

Jesus — That is, a Saviour. It is the same name with Joshua (who was a type of him) which properly signifies, The Lord, Salvation. His people — Israel. And all the Israel of God.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Matthew 1:21

And she shall bring forth (3) a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save (i) his people from their sins.

(3) Christ is born of the same virgin who never knew a man: and is named Jesus by God himself through the angel.

(i) Save, and this shows us the meaning of the name Jesus.
