The Origin of the name 'Jesus'

The English name Jesus is derived from the Classical Latin IESVS which appeared on the placard on the Messiah's Cross on Good Friday April 7, 30 AD (7/4/783 AUC). At that time, there were no small letters in Latin nor was there the letter J or U. IESVS was the Classical Latin form of the Greek Iesous, which in turn is the transliteration of the Hebrew Yeshua/Y'shua/Jeshua, or Joshua, or again Jehoshua, meaning "YHWH/Yehowah (Yahweh/Jehovah) is salvation." (Later, when the letter U and small letters were introduced to Latin, Iesus became the spelling.) Though the name in one form or another occurs frequently in the Old Testament, it first appears in Numbers 13:16 when Moses renamed Hoshea the son of Nun to Josue/Joshua who would lead the Israelites into the Promised Land. The name was not born by a person of prominence between the time of Joshua the successor to Moses and Josue/Joshua the son of Jozadak the high priest in the days of Zerubbabel and the building of the 2nd Temple (Ezra 5:2). It was also the name of the author of Ecclesiaticus, of one of the Christ's ancestors mentioned in his genealogy, found in the Third Gospel (Luke 3:29), and one of Paul's companions (Colossians 4:11). During the Hellenizing period, Jason, a purely Greek analogon of Jesus, appears to have been adopted by many (1 Maccabees 8:17; 12:16; 14:22; 2 Maccabees 1:7; 2:24; 4:7-26; 5:5-10; Acts 17:5-9; Romans 16:21). The Greek name is connected with the verb iasthai: to heal; it is therefore, not surprising that some of the Greek Church Fathers allied the name Jesus with the same root (Eusebius, "Dem. Ev.", IV; cf. Acts 9:34; 10:38). Though about the time of the Christ the name Y'shua appears to have been fairly common (Josephus, "Ant.", XV, ix, 2; XVII, xiii, 1; XX, ix, 1; "Bel. Jud.", III, ix, 7; IV, iii, 9; VI, v, 5; "Vit.", 22) it was imposed on the Lord by GOD's express order (Luke 1:31; Matthew 1:21), to foreshow that the child was destined to "save his people from their sins." Philo ("De Mutt. Nom.", 21) is therefore, right when he explains Iesous as meaning soteria kyrion; Eusebius (Dem., Ev., IV, ad fin.; P.G., XXII, 333) gives the meaning Theou soterion; while St. Cyril of Jerusalem interprets the word as equivalent to soter (Catechetical Lectures X. 13). This last writer, however, appears to agree with Clement of Alexandria in considering Iesous to be of Greek origin (The Pedagogue III. 12); St. Chrysostom emphasizes again the Hebrew derivation of the name and its meaning soter (Homily 2 on Matthew, No. 2), thus agreeing with the exegesis of the angel speaking to St. Joseph (Matthew 1:21).

Hi Brad,

................................................GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT

JEHOVAH is pronounced in Hebrew: [יהוה] YÄ-hä-vā .YOU HAVE POSTED A COUNTERFEIT NAME.

JESUS is Pronounced in Hebrew: [יהשוע] YÄ-shü-ă ..ANOTHER COUNTERFEIT NAME IS ..[ישוע] Yəsh-yü-ă


The Hebrew word [ישוע] Yəsh-yü-ă merely means ‘He will save’. Distancing [יה]’s (YÄ's) salvation
from the man Jesus and is a rejection of Jesus=74 as Messiah=74. This subtle distinction of [ישוע] Yəsh-yü-ă
purposely substituted for [יהשוע] YÄ-shü-ă usually goes unnoticed when heard by a non Hebrew-speaking person;
nevertheless, the use of Yəsh-yü-ă (by the Jews) instead of YÄ-shü-ă wholly implies a specific denial of Jesus as Lord and Savior.

Jesus’ authentic Name [יהשוע] YÄ-shü-ă has a direct connection to GOD’s name [יה]
in that YÄ is the first part of Jesus’ “GENUINE” name. GOD’s name is not vocalized in
the English translation of the name Jesus and therefore misses the precise exactness
and direct authentic connection to God’s Hebrew name [יה] YÄ.

Jesus’ Name in Hebrew יהשוע means: (“YÄ is salvation” [יה]+[ישע]=[יהשוע]) the salvation of [GOD the Father=117].
[יהשוע] “Jesus” REAL name authentically establishes [יהוה] “JEHOVAH” as the highest Name. (Psalm 83:18)


(Phil. 2:9,11: Wherefore [Holy Spirit] has highly exalted [Jesus] giving Him a name (“YÄ is Salvation”)
which is above every name, to the glory of [GOD The Father=117].) Neither is there salvation
in any other name: for there is no other name given among men (יהשוע), whereby we must be
saved. (Acts 4:12) People speaking fluent Hebrew know that in essence, [יהשוע] YÄ-shü-ă means:
“YÄ is Salvation”. The Name of [GOD=26] is [יהוה=26] spoken as [YÄ=26]; and “YÄ-hä-vā”!

“The Savior”=117 is “GOD The Father”=117, 117=יהוה האלהים YÄ-hä-vā .hä ĔL-ō-Hêêm)!
And He is Savior to all who walk the ground! “JEHOVAH GOD”; and there is ‘NO’ other! (Isaiah 43:11)


God bless
