During the second Temple period (beginning 538 BC – 70 AD), Yeshua first became a known form of the name Yehoshua. All occurrences of Yeshua in the Hebrew Bible are in I Chron. 24:11, II Chron. 31:15, Ezra, and Nehemiah where it is transliterated into English as Jeshua.
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).
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.
( Jesus comes from the transliteration of Yeshua into Greek and then English.) Because the New Testament was originally written in Greek, not Hebrew or Aramaic. Greeks did not use the sound sh, so the evangelists substituted an S sound. Then, to make it a masculine name, they added another S sound at the end.
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.
In the Hebrew Bible (Exodus 3:14), Yahweh , the personal name of God, is revealed directly to Moses .
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.
In Christian doctrine, Jesus is identified as the Messiah and is called Christ (from the Greek for Messiah). In the New Testament, Jesus is called Messiah several times, for example the Gospel according to Mark begins with the sentence “The beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ , the Son of God .” (Mark 1:1).
Historians have never included a year zero . This means that between, for example, 1 January 500 BC and 1 January AD 500, there are 999 years : 500 years BC, and 499 years AD preceding 500. In common usage anno Domini 1 is preceded by the year 1 BC, without an intervening year zero .
With the story of the birth of Christ coinciding with this date, many Christian symbols for Christ use the astrological symbol for Pisces, the fishes. The figure Christ himself bears many of the temperaments and personality traits of a Pisces, and is thus considered an archetype of the Piscean.
Mary is almost always decked out in blue , while Jesus typically wears red. Throughout history, blue has been considered a sacred and valuable hue.
The Gospel of Mark (6:3) and the Gospel of Matthew (13:55–56) mention James, Joseph/Joses, Judas/Jude and Simon as brothers of Jesus , the son of Mary. The same verses also mention unnamed sisters of Jesus .
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”.
Younger half – brother , son of Mary and Joseph So James and the other ” brothers ” of Jesus are considered by many to be Jesus’s younger half – brothers , born of Mary and Joseph.
