Many people are not familiar with the word
Yeshua. Here we describe how it came about and why it is the true pronunciation
of the name of our Lord and Savior; the Massiah for all mankind.
WHY DO WE CALL HIM YESHUA?
Yeshua (Jesus) is a name which means ‘Salvation’ in Hebrew.
Who is Yeshua? Yeshua
is the same as Jesus of the New Testament Bible.
Why do people call Yeshua ‘Jesus’?
The name “Jesus” comes from the Latin Iesus,
which comes from an Anglicized form of the Greek name Iesous.
What this means is that the Greek name Iesous was
altered as it was adopted by the English language. In the 1st century the Greek name Iesous represented the Hebrew name Yeshua, which was a
shortened form of the Hebrew name Yehoshua. The
name ‘Jesus’ did not yet exist during the time that Jesus Christ was on
Earth, approximately 4 BC to 29 or 34 AD.
Yeshua (ישוע, with vowel pointing יֵשׁוּעַ – yēšūă‘ in
Hebrew) was a common alternative form of the name יְהוֹשֻׁעַ ("Yehoshua"
– Joshua) in later books of the Hebrew Bible and among Jews of the Second
Temple period. The name corresponds to the Greek spelling Iesous, from which, through the Latin Iesus, comes the English spelling Jesus.
The name of Jesus in Strong’s concordance: G2424 Ἰησοῦς
1. (meaning) He is Salvation, Yahweh saves (i.e. the Savior).

Every name in the Hebrew Bible has a specific meaning; we choose
to call our Lord by the name He was known by, while He was on earth. What
about calling Him by the name Jesus? We personally think based on clear
evidence, God will still respond at the name of Jesus. However for us, when
we found out how the name “Jesus” came about, we reverted to the original
pronunciation of His name.
