Matthew 1:21 – He Shall Save

Matthew 1:21
21
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Hebrews 7:22
22
By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.

Hebrews 8:6
6
But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.

-Did you know that the word “Sin” occurs 336 times in the Old Testament and only 112 in the New Testament?  “Hate” is mentioned 71 times in the Old Testament and only 16 times in the New Testament while the word “Remember” occurs 121 times in the Old Testament and only 27 times in the New Testament.  What could account for the difference between the two?  There is another word that is mentioned 983 times in the New Testament but never spoken in the Old; that word is “Jesus” and just as the Angel declared to Mary, the Lord was so named because He would save His people from their sin, their hate, and from their awful remembrance of having carried both.
