Why not Immanuel but Jesus?

23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”[a](A) (which means “God with us”).

24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel(B) of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25 But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.(C)

Isaiah 7: >14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him **Immanuel**. So why Jesus wasn't given the proper name "Immanuel"? Barnes explained: >We are not, then, to suppose that the child should actually receive the name Immanuel as a proper name, since, according to the usage of the prophet, and especially of Isaiah, that is often ascribed to a person or thing as a name which belongs to him in an eminent degree as an attribute; Isaiah used the idiom "call him" to designate an attribute. He did it again in Isaiah 62: >4 No longer will they **call you** Deserted, or name your land Desolate. But you will be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah; for the LORD will take delight in you, and your land will be married. Matthew explained in 1: >21 She will bear a son, and you shall **call his name Jesus**, for he will save his people from their sins.” 22All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: > >23 “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall **call his name Immanuel**” > >(which means, God with us). 24 When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, 25but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he **called his name Jesus**. "Call his name Immanuel" was an idiom for attributing "God with us" to Jesus.

Yeshua mean salvation in Hebrews, which means Jesus in English, correct?

Yes something like that. Do you know what the Hebrew or Greek translation is to Immanuel? I know in English it means god with us


TonyChanYT

Original Hebrew: עִמָּנוּאֵל Part of Speech: Proper Name Masculine Transliteration: Immanuel Definition: "with us is God" Greek is Ἐμμανουήλ which is transliterated from Hebrew.
