Hmm...nice find. The creators of Anvil Studio must know of this little known fact as well.
In Hebrew Yeshua means Salvation while the name Jesus has no intrinsic meaning in English whatsoever....
Yeshua is a Hebrew name which has been transliterated into Greek as Iesous (IhsouV: pronounced "ee-ay-SUS"). The English "Jesus" comes from the Latin transliteration of the Greek name into the Latin Iesus.
Now Greek has no "y" sound, but the Latin "i" is both an "i" and a "j" (i.e. it can have a consonantal force in front of other vowels), the latter of which is properly pronounced like the English "y" (which explains the German Jesu, "YAY-su") That is why we spell Jesus as we do, taking it straight from Latin, but we pronounce the name with a soft "j" sound because that is what we do in English with the consonantal "j".
