In Matthew, chapter 1, verses 21-23 it says his name is Jesus, but then says Immanuel, which is it? Why two different names?

Peter had a bunch of names also.

Matthew 8:14 "And when Jesus was come into Peter's house"

Matthew 16:17 "And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona"

Acts 15:14 "Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name. "

I Corinthians 1:12 "Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas"


Being known by multiple names wasn't an oddity in the Bible Times.

God has many names. While many prefer Jehovah, I'll just use the letters YHWH.

YHWH-Jireh, YHWH-Rapha, YHWH-M'Kadesh, and many more throughout the Tanach. (OT) Each has meaning, each contains the root YHWH. So in Matthew we see him as Emanuel, simply, "God with us." Or, Yahushua (Jesus), which means "YHWH has become our salvation."

Many names, many titles...all declaring his power, authority, omni-presence, omni-potence, eternal nature.

Peace.
