And at the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
Luke 2:21

“She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”
Matthew 1:21

By this Name we are blessed. Come, Lord Jesus.
