The Hebrew name of Jesus of Nazareth is probably pronounced ‘Yeshua’, although this is uncertain and depends on the reconstruction of several ancient Hebrew dialects.
Jesus’ name in Hebrew was “Yeshua” which translates to English as Joshua . So how did we get the name “Jesus”?
“ Hesus ” is the Spanish-influenced pronunciation of “ Jesus ”. The English version comes from a Latinized version of the Greek version of a Hebrew name that’s sometimes spelled (in English) “Yeshua”, which is a lot closer guide to the original pronunciation .
Though his name may actually be Joshua, the name ” Jesus ” wasn’t born out of creativity but also translation. When Yeshua is translated into Greek, which the New Testament is derived from, it becomes Iēsous, which in English spelling is ” Jesus .”

Yahweh is the name of the God of the Bible. He is the God to whom Jesus prayed. Similarly, Jesus is an Anglicised version of a Greek version of the name Ιησούς, which, itself, in Hebrew is יהושע, commonly Joshua in English. So Jesus and Joshua are effectively the same name.
