Names of Jesus in the Bible

The name Jesus comes from Greek for ‘Joshua’ which means ‘God is salvation’.  The name ‘Jesus’ was well explained in Matthew’s Gospel: “And she (Mary) will bear a son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins.”  Matthew 1:21
