There are many names for Our Saviour aka Jesus and under different circumstances (for a pretty comprehensive list visit: https://www.blueletterbible.org/study/parallel/paral19.cfm

For the J usage argument-to me…https://www.gotquestions.org/Yeshua-Jesus.html, explains it the best!

Does the name Jesus actually mean “Hail Zeus”? (click this link: https://www.gotquestions.org/Jesus-Hail-Zeus.html)

And Why wasn’t Jesus named Immanuel? (a question i never thought to ask, interesting) Click this link: https://www.gotquestions.org/Immanuel-Jesus.html

Looking at all this confusion is what led me to start using Yeshua.

( an interesting find- The Original Names of the 12 Disciples: https://steubenvilleconferences.com/12-apostles

To me an even BETTER reason to call Him Yeshua! (an excerpt from the article, on this link: https://www.oneforisrael.org/bible-based-teaching-from-israel/jesus-vs-yeshua/) For this FULFILLS the verse where Jesus is a STUMBLING BLOCK to some 1 Corinthians 1:23, 1 Peter 2:8

Sadly, for many long years among Hebrew-speaking Jewish people, Yeshua has been known as “Yeshu”, which is an acronym for a curse: “yimakh shemo ve zikhro” which means, “May his name and memory be obliterated”. So much suffering and persecution has been inflicted upon Jewish people in the name of Yeshua that his very name has become a stumbling block and offense, and now he is often considered one of the enemies of the Jewish people. This word “Yeshu” is made of three Hebrew letters – Y-Sh-U (ישו), but it is missing the last letter of his name – the “Ah” sound. This last letter is called an “Ayin” (ע), which, rather interestingly, means “eye”. It’s almost as if without the “ayin” they cannot see, but when the “ayin” is added, sight comes to the blind.

So! Jesus in Spanish means Hail Zeus? Well, The Holy Spirit would know that and NOT use the name Jesus for that very reason. Explains why so many from certain Spanish countries use the name Jesus so…easily.

Seeing that it’s a curse among the Hebrews (they even use Nazarene!) settles it all for me! For i want them to know that the one they crucified, is My Lord (now to find a Hebrew name for the Holy Spirit?) 🙂
