Q29. Why is the Son of God called JESUS, that is, Savior?

A. Because He saves us from our sins,1 and because salvation is not to be sought or found in any other.2

1 Matt  1:21. Heb 7:25. 2 Acts 4:12. * Luke 2:10,11.

Q30. Do those also believe in the only Savior Jesus, who seek their salvation and welfare of saints, of themselves, or anywhere else?

A. No, although they make their boast of Him, yet in deeds they deny the only Savior Jesus,1 for either Jesus is not a complete Savior, or they who by true faith receive this Savior, must have in Him all that is necessary to their salvation.

1 Cor 1:131 Cor 1:30, 31Gal 5:4. 2 Isaiah 9:7Col 1:20Col 2:10John 1:16. * Matt  23, 28.
