Ancient Aramaic Names

These names were used by Aramaic speakers of the ancient Near East.
Te'oma תָּאוֹמָא m Ancient Aramaic
Old Aramaic form of Thomas.
Yeshua יֵשׁוּעַ m Biblical Hebrew, Ancient Aramaic
Contracted form of Yehoshu'a (see Joshua) used in the books of Ezra and Nehemiah in the Hebrew Bible. The form was also used in Aramaic, and was most likely the name represented by Greek Iesous (see Jesus) in the New Testament. This means it was probably the real name of Jesus.
