Jesus’ name in Hebrew was “ Yeshua ” which translates to English as Joshua .
The Hebrew spelling Yeshua or Y’shua ( ישוע) appears in some later books of the Hebrew Bible. 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.
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.
Aramaic and Hebrew are from the same family; the former’s script likely informed both written Hebrew and Arabic. Like most languages, Aramaic spread through centuries of conquest, spurred by the invasions of the Assyrian and later Persian empires.
Mary is almost always decked out in blue , while Jesus typically wears red. Throughout history, blue has been considered a sacred and valuable hue.
In the Hebrew Bible (Exodus 3:14), Yahweh , the personal name of God, is revealed directly to Moses .
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.
A: Jesus was first referred to in Old English as hǽlend, or “savior” (the word wasn’t capitalized). The name we now spell “ Jesus ” didn’t come into our language until the early Middle English period (1150-1250).
“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!
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.
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”.
In Christian numerology, the number 888 represents Jesus , or sometimes more specifically Christ the Redeemer.
Aramaic is the oldest continuously spoken and written language in the Middle East, even older than written Hebrew and Arabic. It is among the oldest written languages in the world.
So while Jesus ‘ most common spoken language was Aramaic, he was familiar with—if not fluent, or even proficient in—three or four different tongues. As with many multilingual people, which one he spoke probably depended on the context of his words, as well as the audience he was speaking to at the time.
The Aramaic word for God is “alaha”/”aloho”, which is related to the Hebrew word “elohim”.
