Jesus’ name in Hebrew was “ Yeshua ” which translates to English as Joshua .
As a child, ” H ” was a middle initial meaning “Holy” and included to honor Jesus while his name was being used to scramble young brains into malleable balls of pure fear. Most folks bellowed the simple ” Jesus Christ ,” so children felt privileged to hear that added ” H .”
The name Jesus is derived from the Hebrew name Yeshua /Y’shua, which is based on the Semitic root y-š-ʕ (Hebrew: ישע), meaning “to deliver; to rescue.”
Mary was married to a fellow named Joseph, son of Javob. In the same way many Scandinavian countries use similar names such as so and so, son of so and so.. As in John Davidson (son of David) who son would be surnamed Johnson, and so on. Jesus did not have a last name.
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.
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.
In the Bible this number is represented as the symbol of perfection and completion. Number 7 is repeated three times in number 777 , which means that 777 is a perfect number. It actually represents the perfect trinity of God the Holy Spirit, God the Son and God the Father.
In Christian numerology, the number 888 represents Jesus , or sometimes more specifically Christ the Redeemer.
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.
( 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.
For Jewish people YHWH is the most holy name of God, as written in the ancient Hebrew language. The written language showed no vowels, so the pronunciation is not agreed on. However, most academics agree that ” Yahweh ” is the most accepted way to say it.
Jesus ‘ brothers and sisters 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 .
According to the apocryphal Gospel of James, Mary was the daughter of Saint Joachim and Saint Anne. Before Mary’s conception, Anne had been barren and was far advanced in years.
First appearing in the gospels of Matthew and Luke, Saint Joseph was the earthly father of Jesus Christ and the husband of the Virgin Mary.
