Matthew

Matthew 1:18-23

18
Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit.

19
Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly.

20
But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.

21
And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”

22
So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying:

23
“Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”



Jesus means The Lord is Salvation.

Jesus saves us from our sins.

Jesus is Immanuel – God with us.

Matthew 10:29-31

29
Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will.

30
But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

31
Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.



Not even one of the sparrows falls to the ground apart from our Father’s will.

Even the very hairs of our head are all numbered because the Father is sovereign and has complete knowledge.
