A name of Christ, used in fourfold way:

(1) "The Branch of Jehovah" (Isa 4:2), that is, the "Immanuel" character of Christ (Isa 7:14) to be fully manifested to restored and converted Israel after His return in divine glory (Mat 25:31).

(2) the "Branch of David" (Isa 11:1); (Jer 23:5); (Jer 33:15) that is, the Messiah, "of the seed of David according to the flesh" (Rom 1:3) revealed in His earthly glory as King of kings, and Lord of lords;

(3) Jehovah's "Servant, the Branch" (Zac 3:8) Messiah's humiliation and obedience unto death according to; (Isa 52:13-15); (Isa 53:1-12); (Phi 2:5-8).

(4) the "man whose name is the Branch" (Zac 6:12); (Zac 6:13) that is His character as Son of man, the "last Adam," the "second Man" (Co1 15:45-47) reigning, as Priest-King, over the earth in the dominion given to and lost by the first Adam. Matthew is the Gospel of the "Branch of David"; Mark of "Jehovah's Servant, the Branch"; Luke of "the man whose name is the Branch"; John of "the Branch of Jehovah."
