→Immanuel / Emmanuel
===Immanuel / Emmanuel===
Immanuel''' ( Hebrew '''עִמָּנוּאֵל''') as found in the Hebrew Text of the [[Book of Isaiah]] of the [[Old Testament]] consists of two Hebrew words: אל (''El'', meaning ''God'') and עמנו (''Imanu'', meaning ''with us'') and therefore has the meaning "'''God with us''' ." It also appears as Εμμανουηλ (''Emmanuel'') in Isaiah 7:14 of the Greek [[Septuagint]], and is most notably found in [[Gospel of Matthew|Matthew]] 1:23 where this descriptive name is applied to Our Lord and Savior since He is "God with us."
:"Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name ''Emmanuel'', which being interpreted is, ''God with us''. (Matt. 1:23; KJV)
:"Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; behold, a [[Theotokos|virgin]] shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name ''Immanuel''. (Isa. 7:14; KJV)
