In The Name of the Lord

 Jesus . The angel spoke to Mary in Hebrew, not in Greek. The angel told Mary to use this particular Hebrew name because this name is related in its root form to the verb yasha, a Hebrew verb found used in Psalm 69:1, translated as "save" but is actually closer in meaning to rescue, to help, to defend and to bring to a safe place. Yasha is about moving someone from a narrow, confined space to a wide, open space.

The Blood of Jesus cleanses us from sin because it is the Blood of the Father that courses through Him. It is because He has Restored the Doorway, to the Source of Life that "through Him", through the example of His Life, we, too, are afforded that same access to the Father.
