User comments for Jesus (Meaning / History Only)
Jesus is not God's name, Jesus is the name of his son, at least it is in the Bible which I'm familiar with.

In original Hebrew Jesus's name is Yeshua.
This is not an opinion or guess, this is what the Bible says.
Matthew 1:21 (New King James Version)
21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.”
So yes Jesus means savior, but Yehshua is related to Joshua but it doesn't directly come from it.
The Greek and Aramaic form of Jesus derive from the Greek word: ΙΑΣΟΝ (Jason) which means in Greek: the person who heals. We find this word as second component also in the English word: disease > dis-ease = bad healing.
The English name came as many from a mistake. The Bible was first printed in Germany. When it was translated into English the name remained in the german form. So Jesus Should have been translated Iesus since J is pronounced as I in german.
Ps: usually the simplest solution is the correct one;
The original Hebrew name is Yahshua and can be proven. It means Yahweh is salvation. Yah for Yahweh, shua for salvation. He came in his Father's name as written in John 5th chapter. Joshua was originally Yahshua as well. Same pronunciation as Joshua, except since there was no J in the Hebrew language, and because of the mistranslated of changing the y to an I and eventually to a j, it became Joshua. Joshua was not the name given by the creator, Yahshua was, both with Moses and when born from Mary.
Jesus and Joshua are the same name as Jacob and James; the only difference is about tradition. It's a mistake to consider all of them different names: they are simply variations of a single Hebrew name.
Jesus' real name wasn't Jesus. His real name was Yeshua or Joshua which was a very common Hebrew name. I cannot believe how judgmental all the people here are about naming a child after our Lord. His real name is I AM! Who did He tell Moses He was at the burning bush? He told Moses to tell the Israelites "tell them my name is I AM" There were many named Joshua. That name got translated thru time into Jesus. Read up on your history people and stop being so judgmental. Maybe you all need to go back and start reading your Bibles starting with John 3:16-17.
