Hebrew Yehoshua à Hebrew Yeshua
Hebrew Yeshua à Greek Yesous
Greek Yesous à English Jesus
Okay so "Jesus" was actually called Yeshua by fellow Hebrews of his time. The Old Testament or "Tankah" mentions "Yehoshua, Yeshua" so does this
mean Jesus (Yeshua) is actually as old/older as the Old Testament? I hope that made sense.

We all know that linguist are inspired!
How the name YEHshua (or Yehoshua) and JEHovah came about is becuase of the Jews disuse of the name of our Heavenly Father and Creator Yahweh. Note
that Dr. Daniel Botkin is a Messianic Jew and chooses to follow in the tradition of the Jews in not pronouning the Name Yahweh. YAHshua means 'Yahweh
is Redeemer' and the name YEHshua ( or YEHoshua) simply means 'he is redeemer'. Note that this name YEHshua does not designate who our Supreme
redeemer is and that the name YAHshua does. That is why YAHshua said I come in my Father's Name and you receive me not, but if another comes in his
own name him you will receive (John 5:43). The name YEHshua was a common Hebrew name when YAHshua was here on earth, but His name YAHshua was
forbidden to speak (Acts 4:17).
Names should be transliterated, not translated, especially if the name is to be set apart (holy, sacred). Our Heavenly Father and Creator's Name is
the only Name that is to be set apart from all other names. The name of our Heavenly Father Yahweh is integrated as a suffix into many names in
Scripture such as JeremYAH, ZecharYAH, ZephanYAH, and etc. In the Name Yahshua His Name is prefixed. The closest transliteration of this name in
English used in the K.J.V. is 'Joshua'.
The name Jesus is a translation, not a transliteration. Just as the 'iah' (YAH) is prefixed and suffixed in Hebrew names to signifiy the Name
Yahweh, in this same manner the 'sus' is suffixed in Greek names to signify the name Zeus. Note that in Spanish the name Jesus is pronounced heh
(ZEUS). Note also that the name Jesus is pronounced Je - ZUS
. Zeus is not redeemer, Father Yahweh is! Praise Yahweh!
Give unto Yahweh the esteem (glory0 due unto His Name!
The Name Yahweh
