"You are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins." All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: "The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel" (which means "God with us").
The essays collected here originated as papers given at the Annual Moore College School of Theology for 2014.
Like Matthew’s Gospel itself, they show a concern to place the good news about Jesus Christ in the context of God’s unfolding plan of salvation throughout the centuries. The history of Israel contains both promise and pattern that point ahead to the coming of Jesus Christ as the Messiah who will ‘save his people from their sins’.
The contributors are Keith Birchley, Peter Bolt, Ben Cooper, Matthew Jensen, Jeff Read, Bill Salier, Michael Stead, Jane Tooher and Paul Williamson.
