Jesus’s name

Discuss either theological doctrines, ideas about God, or Biblical criticism. I don't want any debates about creation vs evolution.

Jesus’s name

Post by SayaOtonashi » Tue Mar 13, 2018 11:40 am

I notice many sites and people have used many different spelling of Jesus’s Hebrew’s name which is Yeshus corrected? Why is that?

Jesus is anglicized Greek. Iasu is Greek, Iota ata sigma upsilon. the Greek comes from Hebrew Yeshua. When his Hebrew name is ot ran through Greek spelling but transliterated directly to English it is Joshua. Joshua in the OT has the same name in Hebrew as Jesus.

Have you seen people using different words for Jesus’s Hebrew’s name? There is this whole sacred theology going on

Yes I have seen that but they are mixed up. It comes from the name we take as Joshua it means Ywh (I abreviate the name) is salvation. Two forms of the name for Jesus in Hebrew, Yeshua and yeshoaw or something like that not sure of spellimg on second one.
