Jesus’ name in Hebrew was “Yeshua” which translates to English as Joshua . So how did we get the name “Jesus”?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Yahshua is a proposed transliteration of the original Hebrew name of Jesus of Nazareth (יהושע), considered by Christians and Messianic Jews to be the Messiah. The name means Yahweh (Yah) is salvation (Shua).
When, in turn, the Bible was translated into Latin from the original Greek, the translators rendered the name as “Iesus.” Since Latin was the preferred language of the Catholic Church, the Latin version of “ Yeshua ” was the name for Christ throughout Europe.
Yes, absolutely. Jesus is YHWH . The Father is YHWH , The Son ( JESUS ) or Word of God is YHWH , the Spirit of God or Holy Spirit is YHWH , not 3 YHWH one YHWH . The term Yahweh or ‘eh-yeh (אֶֽהְיֶ֖ה) means “I am” and is first used in Exodus 3:14 and goes on to become the most common word for God in the Old Testament.
Mary is almost always decked out in blue , while Jesus typically wears red. Throughout history, blue has been considered a sacred and valuable hue.
“My grace is sufficient for you.” It is right now. Not that it will be some day but right now, at this moment, His grace is sufficient. “My grace is sufficient for you.” I’m so glad God didn’t say, “My grace is sufficient for Paul the Apostle.” YOU can be the “you” in for you. God’s grace is sufficient for you!
Elohim , singular Eloah, (Hebrew: God), the God of Israel in the Old Testament. Thus, in Genesis the words, “In the beginning God ( Elohim ) created the heavens and the earth,” Elohim is monotheistic in connotation, though its grammatical structure seems polytheistic.
The name corresponds to the Greek spelling Iesous (Ἰησοῦς), from which, through the Latin IESVS/Iesus, comes the English spelling Jesus . The 2004 film The Passion of the Christ , which was made in Aramaic, used Yeshua as the name of Jesus and is the most well known western Christian work to have done so.
Yahweh was spoken often by Jews. In the New Testament, Yahweh is also present with the expanded name of Yahshua ( Jesus ), meaning ” Yahweh (Yah) Saves(shua). In some English language Bibles, it is written in all capital letters as “LORD,” as in Jewish tradition. Others, such as the Jerusalem Bible use ” Yahweh “.
Jesus does not have a last name . Last names were not common in those times. Christ is not a name , but a title. Christ means “anointed” or “Messiah”, so Jesus became the “Christ” or “Messiah” when he got baptized at the age of 30.
In the Hebrew Bible (Exodus 3:14), Yahweh , the personal name of God, is revealed directly to Moses .
23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel , which being interpreted is, God with us. The gospel of Matthew was written by an author who believed that Jesus was the promised Messiah, “God with us”.
The emergence of Trinitarian theology of God the Father in early Christianity was based on two key ideas: first the shared identity of the Yahweh of the Old Testament and the God of Jesus in the New Testament, and then the self-distinction and yet the unity between Jesus and his Father .
Some Bible versions, such as the Jerusalem Bible , employ the name Yahweh, a transliteration of Hebrew YHWH, in the English text of the Old Testament , where traditional English versions have LORD. Most Sacred Name versions use the name Yahshua, a Semitic form of the name Jesus.
The word possibly was “Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh Asher” meaning ” I am That I am That”. Moses in his ecstasy and bliss wanted to share this state with the people of Israel and so it was a need to give a name to this experience, to this state, hence he gave a name to “That” and “Ehyeh” became ” Yahweh “.
