Name of Jesus
Luke 2:15-21 (NRSV)
The child is named Jesus
When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the
shepherds said to one another, "Let us go now to Bethlehem and see this
thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us." So
they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the child lying in
the manger. When they saw this, they made known what had been told them
about this child; and all who heard it were amazed at what the
shepherds told them. But Mary treasured all these words and pondered
them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God
for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.
After eight days had passed, it was time to circumcise the
child; and he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he
was conceived in the womb.
