Is It Jesus Or Yeshewa

Does anyone have any insight to the "real" name of Jesus? The letter 'J' is less than 500 years old? Im currently researching it and would like to know if Jesus is the real name of the one who came died and on the third day rose, or is it Yeshewa?

The real name of God son is YAHOSHUAH means YAHAWAH (the name of his father) and YOSHUAH (saveur). Till now Hebrew people don't use the letter 'J' like we know the son of God was hebrew, so it is clear that Jesus won't be his real name.
But the big problem is this, it is written in your bible that only one name you Christian can ask for forgiveness (YAHOSHUAH) so if it is not the real name you ask for forgiveness result noone listen to your prayer and else...and no one will forgive you.

The Greek "nick-name" for our Savior is Jesus (Gee-sus) However the Hebrew laguage has no J. It is pronounced as Y. Therefore His name in Hebrew is Yeshua, or, Yoshua.
---Danelle on 7/17/08

Yah means G-d - shua - means saves. Yahshua means G-d save for He will save his people from thier sins. There are different spellings - Y'shua, Yeshua and others. His mother would would have called him by his Hebrew name - Y'shua!
---Gophylann on 6/4/08

Jesus is to Yeshewa or Joshua,
as Jehovah is to Yahweh, or YHWH.
The names are the same, just translated into different languages.
Like...John and Juan...or George and Jorge?...Edward and Edwardo, Francis and Francisco, Jane and Juanita, Mary and Maria.

In Jesus' time, they literally called Him Yeshewa (spelling?) like in the Passion of the Christ. There's nothing wrong with saying His name in our own language, though. :-) Or we'd call Joshua the same thing, right?

And holy is His name.Lk-1:49-His name was called JESUS-the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb.Lk-2:21 Jh-20:31-but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ-the Son of God-and that believing you may have life in His name.Matt-1:21-And she will bring forth a Son, you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.Lk1:23Behold-the virgin shall be with child-bear a Son-and they shall call His name Immanuel-which is translated-God with us.

Thats Clever Emcee.
If you were a Roman in the days of Jesus you WOULD have called him Le/so/us, IF you were a Jew you WOULD have called him Yahshua,
IF you were Greek you WOULD have called him Le/s/ous, THEN English came along and called Him Jesus when the letter "J" came to be a Letter of the ABC's...
Yah/sh/ua = Hebrew
le/s/ous = Greek
le/so/us = Latin
Je/s/us = English
Everybody DIDN'T speak the Same lang. Like in the Movies.
---Duane_Dudley_Martin on 5/17/08

My Bad,
In ancient Latin Jesus is spelled Iesus, in ancient Greek (I-ee-sous),

In Greek it was spelled Isous
the origin of the Greek name Jesus and its erroneous transliteration of the Hebrew name of our Savior Yahshua.

The English name Jesus, which later employed the letter J, is a derivation from Greek Iesous and the Latin Iesus version.
---Duane_Dudley_Martin on 5/17/08

Was His name Jesus or "YESHEWA"
---Emcee on 4/30/08

Many believe the Messiah's name was the same as Joshuas, written "vwhy" or "wvwhy" in Hebrew (Strongs #3091). The 3rd letter in Joshuas name (reading from right to left) is the letter vav (w) and a vav cannot be silent. The letter vav must be pronounced as either a "v" or an "o" or an "u." In the case of Joshua, it takes an "o" sound, giving us "Ye-ho-SHU-a."
---AG on 4/29/08

Jesus' True Name is YAHUSHUA. The Hebrew Race was chosen to bring Salvation to the Gentile world. GOD created Hebrew as a DISTINCT Holy Language. "Holy" meaning "Set-Apart". The name "Jesus" is a hybrid of Greek, Latin and English. His Name is a Holy Hebrew Name that is spelled in English as YAHUSHUA. The Hybrid Name of JESUS CHRIST will only be Anointed until the rise of the Anti-Christ. For the Son of Perdition will come in the name of "Jesus Christ".

Yah/sh/ua = Hebrew
le/s/ous = Greek

They ALL are reffering to our Lords Name,
NOTHING more and NOTHING less...

Ex. 3:2 Jesus is called the "Angel of the Lord". Ex. 3:13,14 Jesus is called "I AM". Dav\n. 9:25 Jesus is called "Messiah the Prince". Dan. 12:1 Jesus is called "Michael, the Great Prince". John 8:58, Jesus called Himself "I AM". Rev. 12:7 Jesus is called "Michael". What people called Him is another thing.

Yes, GOD is the Great "I AM that I AM", but each Person of the GOD-Head still has a specific Name. And anyone who truly loves Him should have it within them to want to know what those True Names are, and use them. Just as you would for anyone else that you love.

I must say there are some people whom done their homework on His name. What have read about the J sound of His name? I read that there was no J sound until the middle ages. It was always pronounced with the Y sound.

I don't think it's foolshness to get understanding and grow in education of our savior. It's what we are supposed to be doing. I do agree-know Him personally.
---Yochanon on 4/1/08

gordon-You spoke well of a PERSONABLE and intimate God. His name FOREVER (past all names like Yahweh, Jehovah, etc.) is "I am WHO I AM" (Exodus 3:14). HE sent His son Jesus (and we should imitate "I am who I am" "in my inmost SELF" (Romans 7:22) without any "SELF abasement"/abatement (Colossians 2:18,23) because HE wants a PERSONal relationship with us too.

Pharisee, Right! To KNOW Him. That is why He wants us, His Followers, to KNOW His True Name. Would you want someone that you loved to NEVER care too much at all to KNOW YOUR NAME? Never to call you by your name? Really?? GOD is more personable than ALL human beings put together! He has FEELINGS. He's the CREATOR of our feelings. We're made in His Image. He desires for His beloved ones to call Him by His Name.
---Gordon on 3/26/08

It's foolishness to concern ourselves with what name to call God and here's why:

The Holy Spirit is presented in the life of Jesus and speaks to us from there.
From that point of contact we receive him and he dwells within- no failure!

Hence we open our spirit in prayer to that Spirit, now in the presence of God as he bids us to come, THIS is what he desires, that we KNOW HIM in this way, not through proper name recognition. Which do you think God is most concerned with?
---pharisee on 3/25/08

Jesus' proper name derives from the Hebrew "Joshua", meaning "Yahweh" saves" or "salvation. [Matt. 1:21]. Christ is the Greek term for "anointed", equivalent to the Hebrew Messiah. Paul's favorite term for Jesus was "Kurios" "Lord">>>In time it was thought that the divine name "Yahweh" was too holy to even pronounce. Thus the practice arose of using the word Adonal, "Lord".
---catherine on 3/25/08


"Shekinah" is a Hebrew word meaning presence, settling, dwelling, inhabitation (much like dew settles on grass). It has the feminine gender. It ends in "ah" (the feminine noun suffix), not "yah" (which is masculine). Nowhere in the Bible is it spelled with a Y. It is a description, not a proper name.

The Holy Spirit manifests a presence, but is not, itself a presence.
The Holy Spirit manifests wind, but is not, itself wind.

StrongAxe, Let yourself believe the Truth. Women take on their husband's last names when they marry. The Holy Spirit has the Name "YAH" in Her Name, for She is part of the GOD-Head. YAHUSHUA (Jesus Christ) has the Name "YAH" in His Name. "YAH" is in the Father's Name. There are so many MORE THINGS to learn about GOD that we haven't hit upon for thousand's of years. We are learning some "new" things now in the End Times. At GOD's Timing.

The proponents of the name Yahshua claim the Messiahs name was the same as Joshuas, written "vwhy" or "wvwhy" in Hebrew (Strongs #3091). That may be so, but the problem is that neither of these spellings of Joshuas name can possibly be pronounced "Yahshua."

Part 1
---AG on 3/24/08

The third letter in Joshuas name (reading from right to left) is the letter vav (w) and a vav cannot be silent. The letter vav must be pronounced as either a "v" or an "o" or an "u." (In the case of Joshua, it takes an "o" sound, giving us "Ye-ho-SHU-a." Strongs confirms this pronunciation.) For a name to be pronounced "Yahshua," it would have to be spelled [wv--hy, and no such name exists in the Hebrew Bible.

Names and varying spellings are very important. With the internet, they are moreso.

---frances008 on 3/24/08


How about "Jehovah"? That has "yah" in the first three letters, they're just pronounced slightly differently. (J is pronounced Y in many languages, English, French, Spanish and Portugueses are exceptions).

In the Greek word "iesous", the "ie" is "yah" (since Greek has no letter for H
much like Hebrew does not write out vowels).

Also, the Hebrew word "Shekinah" doesn't have a "Yah" at the end.
---StrongAxe on 3/24/08

StrongAxe, The Name "YAH" must be in it. THAT is His Name. And you can never get "too obsessed" when it comes to GOD. The MAJORITY of times that GOD's Name(s) are used in the AMIGHTYWIND Prophecies, it is AT LEAST 99% YAHUVEH, YAHUSHUA and SHKHINYAH (RUACH HA KODESH/Holy Spirit). The Lord DOES have a True and Specific Name. And He is GOD, the Almighty Creator and LORD of all, WHY NOT find out His True Name and USE IT?! You are on the Right Track by looking up that Prophetic Website!

Frances008, There are Three Persons within the GOD-Head. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. When YAHUSHUA (Jesus), the Son, came and walked the Earth in Flesh and Blood, God the Father was still sitting on the Throne of GOD. YAHUSHUA the Son, is God. YAHUVEH the Father is God, SHKHINYAH the Holy Spirit is God. All Three are GOD. GOD is ONE. Yet, GOD is Three in ONE. We don't have to understand it in order to simply believe it.
---Gordon on 3/24/08

Jesus's name was an Aramaic name Aramaic being the root of all languages including hebrew. His name in Aramaic was pronounced "ISHOO MISHIECCKA" Ishoo being the name we know, Jesus, and MISHHIECCKA which in Aramaic is from the word mishhcka(oil) hence "The Onointed One".

In one of her prophecies (#87), Elisabeth Sherrie Elijah said:
"MY NAME is YAHUVEH and it matters not to ME how you spell it or pronounce it as long as you acknowledge MY NAME has YAH in it and so does MY Son the only MESSIAH his NAME is YAHUSHUA it matters not how you spell it as long as you keep MY NAME YAH in it."

So obsessing over just how each letter is spelled and pronounced is a waste of time, and distracts us from more important matters.

Names in the Bible follow the vernacular (that is, the language of the people to whom it is addressed). The exact spelling of names varies drastically between Hebrew and Greek (due to differences in language), and there are even differences between Hebrew and Aramaic, and sometimes even two authors using the same language. What is important is that we know just whom we are talking about. The exact spelling and pronunciation are less important (they are different in every language anyway).

Chasing down alternate names of the lamb of God is unecessary and would be better used to seek the "living water" (like the woman at the well) that was mixed with Christ's blood at the cross (and that Jesus said was necessary, John 7:38).

The identity crisis of Christianity is that WE cannot truly relate to The Lord PERSON ally and be intimate with Him because we have been encouraged to wish that God will relieve us of SELF discipline.

The three acts of God's grace to humanity are...creation, salvation, and spiritual guidance by His spirit.

If we allow His grace to be sufficient for us, we will return to live with Him forever. God all inclusive ("God is ONE", Gal. 3:20) is our common heritage and will also be our destiny if we simply "rest in The Lord". There ARE "better things that belong to salvation" (Hebrews 6:9) and "depths of God" (1 Corin. 2:10) that can be discovered.

Jesus says he is God's son, and Emcee says Jesus is God. Who is correct? I believe Jesus was and is God's Son, and that we can become brothers and sisters of Jesus and fellow heirs of God's glorious promises. If Jesus was God, then God would have been absent from his throne when he came down to earth. No, Jesus was the Son of God. Jesus was completely human, and then, God was in Heaven in charge still. Jesus is and was with God from the beginning, except when he came down to earth and was with men.

Rosalie, in my version, we have 1 Corinthians 6:17 > "But He who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him." And James Strong says the original Greek word for "joined" is "glued".

How does your Yahwist scripture translate this Greek word, please? If we believe in not changing names in translation, why change a word like "glued" to "joined"? "Glued" can better clarify "one spirit with Him", I think.

Pt 1: Jehovah was nonexistent in the original Hebrew scriptures, but later introduced in about 1270 A.D. by a Roman Catholic Spanish Monk, named Raymundus Martini, in his book Pugeo Fidei (Dagger of Faith). It is a latinized or anglicized transliteration, for there is no J nor V in the Hebrew alphabet, and in the Greek alphabet there is no letter J. The name Jesus literally means Salvation. Jesus is Yeshuah in Hebrew (similar to Yehoshua, which is Joshua in English), and correctly it is Iesous in Greek

Pt 2: Hebrew has no vowels, the ancient Hebrews had YHWH for the sacred name of God.

Pt 3: Martini substituted the sacred term for God with the consonants JHVH (possibly deriving this from the common latin term Jove), he then inserted the vowel points of Adonai or Elohim to contrive the first use of the term Jehovah.

The true Name of Jesus Christ is YAHUSHUA. God the Son was named after God the Father YAHUVEH. YAHUSHUA means "YAH saves". The Name "Jesus Christ" is anglicized Greek. YAHUSHUA is Jewish. The Bible says Salvation is "...of the Jews FIRST, then to the Greeks (Gentiles)." The Name "Jesus Christ" is Anointed NOW, but, during the Tribulation, the Anti-Christ will use the name "Jesus Christ" for himself, and YAHUSHUA will THEN be the Name of Salvation.

1)Yeshua is the Hebrew name, and its English spelling is Joshua. Iesous is the Greek transliteration of the Hebrew name, and its English spelling is Jesus.

(For examples of how the two names are interchangeable, see Acts 7:45 and Hebrews 4:8 in the KJV. In both cases, the word Jesus refers to the Old Testament character Joshua.)
