Interpretation of the Holy Bible - St.Matthew : lesson 4
- V20. Joseph was righteous man.
Joseph is convinced about the innocence of St. Mary. But at the same
time she is pregnant. So this causes an agony. If he break the
betrothal to her then she would stoned to death (Duet 22:21:23).

also would be found guilty. He had two solutions. Secretly discard
her or prolong the wedding. But he like any other Jew was also aware
of prophesy "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign;
Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his
name Immanuel" (Isaiah 7:14)(?).

V 20:21 � Annunciation to Joseph
1) The angel uses the verse `Joseph, son of David; is an
allure to Messiah who would be born in the tribe of David.
2) The usage `fear not" is to make him bold.
3) Coveys the message that Mary is innocent and this pregnancy
is Godly not human.
4) The born child will be called Jesus- (meaning in
Hebrew "Yahweh saves"). This is because He would resuscitate his
people from sin.
5) The Jews were expecting their Messiah as a King. But here as
well as in the annunciation to the shepherds shows that Messiah is
the savior. (Every believer has to be keep in mind always that it is
Lord is the savior)
6) "Resuscitate his people from their sins. ". Only God can save
people from sins. Therefore since the child can save the people form
sins, the child is God.
