Luke 2:10-11

Luke 2:10-11

Categories:

1. In verse 11, there are three nouns, namely, “Saviour,” “Messiah,” and “Lord”—all refer to Jesus (note: there is no definite article)

2. Based on these passages, the word “Saviour” carries four shades of meaning (7 times to refer to God and 16 times with Jesus—A good number of them are titles)

(a) Helper: the one, who is stronger than human being, comes alongside to help: “who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel” 2 Timothy 1:10

(b) Rescuer: from moral decadence [He gave himself for us to set us free from every kind of lawlessness and to purify for himself a people who are truly his, who are eager to do good] (Titus 2:11-14)

(c) God: who care for both Jews and non-Jews They said to the woman, “No longer do we believe because of your words, for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this one really is “the Saviour of the world” (John 4:42)

(d) God’s agent of salvation (agent noun): who would turn the people of this world from eternal punishment to eternal life. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world (1 John 4:14)

3. In summary, the “Saviour” serves those with whom He has established relationship

4. Jesus the Saviour is the “Messiah, Lord ”

5. Take Away

Make Jesus your Saviour (as opposed to many so-called Saviours)
