She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.â€ All this took place to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet: â€œLook, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel,â€ which means, â€œGod is with us.â€ When Joseph awoke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him; he took her as his wife, but had no marital relations with her until she had borne a son; and he named him Jesus.
