Did you know that Joshua, Isaiah, and Jesus all have the same root name?
Yĕhowshuwa, Yeshua, Yashua, Yĕsha`yah, Y’shua…all sorts of spellings but all the same translation.
From our research we believe the Greeks translators messed up HIS name along the way. There were four different versions of Greek before they used “Koine” Greek as the Bible translation which is a different dialect that ca…me to be during the Hellenistic period. They made up the name Jesus (strong’s 2424). Jesus stems from the Greek work Iēsous which means Jehovah is Salvation according to Strong’s Lexicon. It is pronounced ē-ā-sü’s. Sounds close to ZEUS huh? Many speculate that is where its origin came from but through our research their is not substantial proof of that part of the equation.
In Hebrew HIS name would be HaMashiach Yeshua which means the Messiah of Salvation. How does one get Jesus from the root word Yehowshuwa which is correctly translated into English as Joshua? Technically speaking if you wanted an “ENGLISH” version of our Messiah’s name it would be Joshua not Jesus. Joshua has the same Hebrew name and it got translated to Joshua yet when it comes to our Messiah, HIS name got translated to Jesus.
