Savior is probably the most important descriptive name of God and Jesus (Yeshua‘). It is sometimes associated with other names like Champion and Redeemer. Only twice in the Gospels is Jesus called Savior, once by the angel who visited the shepherds and in the form “Savior of the world” by a shunned Samaritan community. More important, the personal name of Jesus (Yeshua‘) is a short form of the Hebrew name Yehoshua‘, which means, “Yahweh saves.” Jesus demonstrated salvation in the miracles that He did. The rest of the New Testament uses more titles that include the words “savior” or “salvation.” For instance, Prince and Savior.
