    I watched a few films called this when I was a teenager. Don't recall it being a bloke, but then again my eyesight had begun to deteriorate quite badly.

    An illegal from Mexico? πŸ˜€...Sorry, couldn't help myself.

    The term means "God with us" or "God is with us".
    We know that God was with us in Jesus Christ, and Jesus himself said that if one had seen him, he had seen the Father. Names are often symbolic, the meaning of the name importing some characteristic that God wants us to know. When Jesus is called the Lion of Judah, the Lamb, or the tent peg (Zech. 10:4), God is importing characteristics about Jesus that He wants us to know. When it comes to Immanuel, God wants us to know that through Jesus Christ, God was with us. Not with us literally, but acting powerfully through His Son, just as 2 Corinthians 5:19 indicates: “That God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself.” It is important to read exactly what was written: God was in Christ, not God was Christ.

    πŸ™‚ Thanks for the answer; though suspect if the verse had read '...and shall call his name Bernard,' you would have provided an equally impressive explanation.

    Am i right in thinking Immanuel is not taken to mean Jesus in Judaism?

    I'm luckier than you think, as very nearly took your bishop with my queen! (Thinking i had won the bishop, due to the position of my rook). Took me a few seconds to realise my oversight.

    It means , “Yehoshua,” which means “Yahweh is salvation." Yahweh is the name used for God.

    I understand it to be more of a title than a name, but can be a name also. A bit like Obama is also Mr President for example. I could be completely wrong of course but it sounds reasonable to me.

    I remember reading that all bible names are not actual names. They seem to represent the character of the person. For example Delilah meant "Pining away". She pined away at Sampson day after day to reveal the secret of his strength.

    The story of Sampson is one that I've never got to grips with. OK Vic Mature did a poor job on him in the movie, but seriously, where is the gospel message in that one?

    I guess that makes sense. Rather like Luke 1:32;

    'He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High.'
