Jesus & Immanuel

03 Dec

Matthew 1:18-25 describes the birth of Jesus Christ from the perspective of Joseph, his adoptive early father. After learning his fiancé, Mary, is pregnant, Joseph receives a visit from an angel who explains the child has a divine origin. The angel states that the child will have two names, Jesus, and Immanuel. I put together a chart to help me understand the significance of the names and the difference between them.

Immanuel

Jesus

Nature

Office

Fully God

Fully man

Who he is

What he does
