Jesus2
The name given by Joseph to the Savior of the world at his circumcision (Matt. 1: 25; Luke 2: 21), in accordance with the direction of the angel Gabriel (Luke 1: 31; cf. Matt. 1: 21). The name was not an uncommon one among the Jews; see above. An outline of the chief events of his earthly life will be found in the Harmony printed under Gospels. A list of references bearing on the doctrine of his person is given under the heading Christ.
