I find it strange that we have differing opinions on God's name but not on Jesus name, the majority of people all say Jesus even though the Hebrew language doesn't have any J sounds, and it didn't come into the English language until the 16th century. 'The Bible tells us that "There is no other name which to be saved with' shows the importance surely.

Well Jesus IS God

He called Himself the I AM

This is God who spoke to Moses at the burning bush.

I think it's close to this:

YHWH

Becomes Yahweh

Becomes Yehoshua

Becomes Joshua

Becomes Jesus.

Jesus also referred to Himself in Revelation as the Alpha and Omega.. which is also the name for God.

Jesus calls the Father ... 'Eli' when on the cross.

Eloheim is another name for the Supreme God.

But yeah.. they are all linked together.

The names are all different roles or expressions of God.

There is a preacher in Arkansas that makes a big thing out of the pronunciation. He probably figures all people that are mute or have difficulty with the pronunciation are going to hell? Another letter that went though changes is V which became U or vice versa. I think some translations use the Yeshua name in place of Jesus.

Yes but you would surely say a name when you pray, and out of respect you want it to be the correct one.

His name isn't a spell...that's something that's been worked into my heart time and again.

Have you considered that the word "name" means more than just what someone is called?

In the name of King George would mean what? Doing something in the "King's name".


That is where believers should start in my view and it isn't really taught for whatever reason. "ask in my name..." doesn't just mean adding "in Jesus name" at the end of a prayer followed by amen...

I'm not trying to knock people that do this or anything but it's not the words themselves so be careful about that becoming rote. It's a personal prayer, personalize it...it's to a person :)

Touching whether Jesus is correct or not and where it actually came from is "probably" all semantics. My name is different in other languages and it still means me...My name doesn't function in Spanish without a change, it doesn't fit the language.

I think, in general, we should operate within whatever the spoken language is in a culture lest we sound pretentious. If in private prayer it's a super big deal (it is to me) then work out your own salvation there. You aren't alone in the query but it's kind of personal and I don't think there's anything "sinister" about the English translation of His name beyond probably English itself. It's weird and I'm a native speaker.


I'll give a super silly example. Suppose that I had no interest in saying anything Egyptian but I speak English. On is a city in ancient Egypt (Genesis)...how am I supposed to speak English then? With extreme and likely impossible difficulty.

There are a good few other coincidental anomalies within English that contrast with biblical language and noticing them is no problem on a personal level (I don't think) but publicly drawing attention to them is inappropriate to me. Most people wouldn't ever think of a certain word outside of its defined context and if you decided to point it out, please please ask yourself what spirit you are doing so in and what good purpose there is in it.

I could go "on" and "on" about this but unless this is a crisis point for you, I won't.

There is nothing strange about this. The New Testament was written in Greek, and in Greek the name Jesus is IESOUS. The King James translators followed the practice of represent the sound "yay" as "J' since "J" is more commonly used in English. So all the Hebrew words with "Y" are written with "J", e.g. Yehoshua = Joshua.

This probably originated with Jerome's Latin Vulgate (4th century) which used "J" for Jesus. Then all the other English translations before the JKB also used "J" and therefore the world now knows about JESUS in all English translation. But in Spanish that is pronounced as "Yay-soos" since in Spanish "J" is pronounced as "yay".

There is no need to speak about "Yeshua" (derived from Yehoshua) since this is not how Jesus is recognized worldwide. In fact YAHSHUA would be even more accurate, since it means GOD IS [OUR]SALVATION IN Hebrew. But Jesus is also YAHWEH and I AM THAT I AM or simply I AM.

The wonder of names in the Word leaps out when one becomes aware that they are not translated into the spoken languages of this age, no, rather they are transliterated.
Jesus, John, Elizabeth, Joseph, Benjamin, Levi, Isaiah, Jesse, David, etc., all are not translation but transliterations. When we know what they mean we are given even more light than our previous readings

Having said this, I do believe all who have received the Holy Spirit know much of this without the need of a linguistic background, for if this were the case, no one would know Jesus, or Redeemer God.

I'm sorry you feel that way, I do notl feel that asking the question about the original Hebrew name of Jesus to be inappropriate on a Christian forum, and yes it matters to me a great deal as does plenty of others who choose to use a different name than Jesus, that is closer to his original name. The Bible states that every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth (Phil 2:10) so I feel it would be proper to know that name in its authentic form.
I personally feel that after praying about it, the answer gets revealed.
I don't quite know what you mean by, What spirit am I doing it in?
I would of thought it was obvious🤔
I take it you know there is a thread on God's name in the forum?
They are important threads.

How do you pronounce those words?

Or were not all replies welcome, after all?
Of course all replies are welcome, but your answer was mystifying, the subject was, The name of Jesus, and you gave me a list of Bible names beginning with J?
And how do I pronounce what words?

God fully knows His name in every language. If the context of HIS name was held to mean only in the Hebrew language, nobody would be saved. And gentiles would not be accepted. Jesus is His name or Jesus, or Ježíš, Y'shua.

The part many forget about languages is GOD created the different ones in the book of Genesis.

Not sure that you can separate them easily.

John 14:7
If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him.
