Jesus Is “God With Us”

Matthew 1:23 reads “… and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.”

The NIV translates this verse “… and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel — which means, ‘God with us.’”

According to the scriptures then, Jesus was “God with us.” Even if we don’t understand how Jesus could be God (deity), we must still accept it, because the scriptures plainly say it here and in many other places.
