Point #1 is incorrect. Matthew’s account describes the Lord Jesus as being “God with us” (Matthew 1:23). Matthew would immediately reveal to us that this is to be understood in its fullest extent in that the Lord Jesus was worshiped (Matthew 2:11; cf. v. 2) - and this worship is to be to “the Lord your God” (Matthew 4:10).

Furthermore, as “God with us” (YHWH - Psalm 37:7), people can come to Him and find rest for their souls (Matthew 11:28-29). As being the omnipresent “God with us” He is always with the believer (Matthew 18:20; 28:20).

I do find it interesting that there are phrases used by Luke in reference to the Father which are found in the first two chapters of his gospel are later applied unto the Lord Jesus.

a. In the sight of the Lord (Luke 1:15; cf. 2 Corinthians 8:21).

b. Magnify the Lord (Luke 1:46; cf. Acts 19:17).

c. The glory of the Lord (Luke 2:9; cf. 2 Corinthians 8:19).
