Did You know the letter J is only 500 years old?
The truth about the name 'Jesus'.
Here is a copy of the 1581 and 1599 Geneva translation of the New Testament. You can see that there is no letter J.
Five hundred years ago no one had ever heard of the name Jesus. Do a little research on the letter 'J' .You will find that it is a little over 500 years old. As you can see from the above, many early Bibles do not contain the letter J. There is no letter 'J' in the Hebrew, Arabic, Greek and Latin language! The Messiah's name could not begin with the letter 'J' as this letter did not exist some 2,000 years ago.
Is Jesus a Hebrew Name?? NO! Ask any Israeli or Hebrew linguist.
Jesus is the erroneous English version of the Greek transliteration of the name of the Messiah 'Iesous'. which originates from the HEBREW name Yahoshua / Yahushua.
Is it just merely coincidence that 'Ieso' is the Greek goddess of healing, daughter of the Greek chief deity Zeus? The suffix used at the end of the name Jesus makes the noun maculine and refers to the Greek sun god Zeus! .So Jesus can mean 'Hail zeus' or born of Zeus.
Both Ieso and Zeus are Greek pagan deities! Many Greek names have the ’sus’ at the end i.e. Tarsus, Ephesus, Dionysus, to give esteem to the Greek God Zeus!
Here’s the fact…. The Name of the Messiah is NOT Jesus!
Think about it....... If the Messiah was born a Hebrew, then He would have a Hebrew name, and His name should be left in the Hebrew tongue. The Hebrew name Yahoshua / Yahushua. Look at Acts 26 v 14-15
"And when we had all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice speaking to me, and saying in the Hebrew language, Paul, Paul, why do you persecute Me? It is hard for you to kick against the prods." And I said, "Who are you, Master?" And He said, "I am Yahushua, whom you persecute."
Notice…the language the Messiah spoke and Paul heard was in the Set Apart tongue, the HEBREW language .The Messiah spoke His Name in Hebrew not Greek!
Here is a copy of the 1611 KJV of Luke 4 verse 27.
Instead of using the name for the prophet Elisha, the name 'Elizeus' has been used instead. The name Elisha means 'Elohim (God) is Salvation'. Elizeus means 'God is Zeus.'
Can you see how the Greeks inserted their pagan gods name? The 'zeus' or 'sus' ending which is also used in 'iesus / Jesus' refers to the Greek sun god Zeus, a pagan deity! Eli-zeus and Je'zeus are hybrid names which became infused into the 'New Testament' through the translators' Hellinistic associations with the modern paganism of their day.
So what is the Messiah’s true Hebrew Name?
The Name given by the Father to His Son is actually :
‘YAHUSHUA’ - meaning ‘YAH is salvation / delivers.’
In Hebrew it is written as יהושוע (Yod, Hay, Waw, Shin, Waw, Ayin ) reading from right to left.
It is derived from strongs no: 3091 Yahoshua (the 'o' is pronounced as an oo sound) Yahushua (yah- hoo-shoo-a) (it can also be spelled Yahuwshua).
In Matthew 1 v 21 the Messenger (angel) Gabriel told Joseph (Yoseph) (who was an Israelite and spoke Hebrew):
'She will give birth to a son, and you are to give Him the Name ..............., because He will save His people from their sins.'
Was that name? The Greek name 'Ieosus' honourig the Greek God zeus?
Was that name? Jesus honouring the Greek God zeus? (couldn't be the letter J didn't exist).
Or was that Name the Hebrew Name 'Yahushua' meaning YaH saves /delivers or YaH is salvation.
His Name clearly depicts what Gabriel said He would do - SAVE people from their sins.
The Name Yahushua in Paleo Pictograph Hebrew. The pictograph can mean:
The hand that brings life through the nail the sharp nail that opens the eyes.
How amazing is that!
YAH is the shortened name of Yahuwah – the Father’s Name meaning I Am He who exists..
“I am come in my FATHER’S NAME (Yahuwah is salvation), and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.” John 5:43
Can you see the Father’s name in the Son’s name? It is a much more meaningful name and conveys the true essence of who He is and why He came. Every time you declare the Name Yahushua you declare that Yahuwah saves / delivers. How powerful is that!
“Yahuwah, therefore has highly exalted Him and given Him the Name which is above every name, that at the Name of Yahushua, every knee should bow, of those in the heavens, and those on earth, and of those under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Yahushua is Messiah to the esteem of Yahuwah the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11
‘This is His Commandment that we should believe on the Name of His Son Yahushua Messiah.’ 1 John 3:23
So think about it for a minute! Which one has the Father’s name? Yahushua, a Hebrew name meaning Yahuwah saves OR ‘Jesus’ a Greek name originating from and giving honour to pagan deities?
